Black Truffle Popcorn

On weekends we normally watch a movie or two. My husband loves movies while I think movies are okay. I love truffles, and he thinks they are okay. To compromise I watch a movie with him and he shares black truffle popcorn with me. This is just another one of those quirky reasons we have been together for over 20 years now.

I realize that black truffles seem a little decadent to be used on popcorn. Wait until you try this before you pass judgement. If you like truffles, you will love this! Be certain to put the truffle oil and salt on the popcorn while it is still hot. The heat from the popcorn opens up the aroma of the truffle and it is nothing short of intoxicating. I will warn you, once you have had truffled popcorn it is hard to go back to the boring stuff you are accustomed to eating.

¼ cup of white popcorn kernels, not popped

As my husband says “you are either a truffle lover or you aren’t”. Since I love them and he doesn’t I think that makes us a perfect match since it means more truffle for me. Seriously, if you like truffles this really is the best possible popcorn you can imagine. It isn’t too oily or too salty. The aroma is amazing. This is my favorite snack.
