Big brother is eight years old, strong minded, and independent although his heart is one that bleeds for others. Just like his father, I can already see that he has the gift of helps, one that’s servant minded. Without having to ask of him, he helps his siblings get dressed, pours them glasses of milk, or keeps their busy minds at bay by playing games with them.
He’s also been the one with a sincere interest in gardening and cooking with me – he’s been cracking eggs since the age of 2 and frying them up with perfect crisp edges since 5. Yes, he’s just like his father; responsible, dedicated, with a heart to serve others, and it was he who taught Big Brother how to make Dad’s best popcorn. Apparently, mama doesn’t know the magic to light and airy popcorn popped just so … so I let them have their thing 😉 Since I’m not allowed to pop popcorn at our home, Big Brother helped me come up with a fun new way to eat popcorn during this holiday season.
Sweet and Full of Spice, All Natural, Popcorn Treats
Adding a bit of sweet smelling coconut oil to a heavy bottomed pan, Big Brother did his thing and made the lightest, fluffiest popcorn this side of heaven.
Once popped, together, Big Brother and I placed the popcorn into a large pan and added a bit of our favorite popcorn salt from the makers of Real Salt. It’s a super light grain with no grittiness whatsoever. Like all products from Real Salt, it contains over 60 trace minerals.
Once we added the salt, we decided to add some cinnamon and homemade pumpkin pie spice.
To that, we added some dried fruit and our favorite enjoy brand chocolate chips. The heartwarming spices of cinnamon and cloves was filling the air… yes, it was coming together quite nicely.
To sweeten it up and give it a bit of orange color to make best of this season, we simmered some honey with a bit of pureed sweet potato and then added arrowroot powder to thicken it up. It was perfectly sweet and had no hint of sweet potato flavor at all. Together we then drizzled a few tablespoons into the popcorn and tossed all of the ingredients together.
We then had fun separating the popcorn mix into muffin cups and using the leftover sweet caramel type sauce to drizzle over top.
It tastes of the seasons most comforting spices, is gently sweetened, and pairs well with the sweetness in the dried fruit and chocolate chips.
I thin you’ll find that this sweet and full of spice popcorn mix makes a delightful and nourishing treat in this season.
Sweet and Full of Spice, All Natural, Popcorn Treats. It tastes of the seasons most comforting spices, is gently sweetened, and pairs well with the dried fruit and chocolate chips.

- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 cup dried fruit

Add 1/2 cup of popcorn to the pan and cover. The popcorn should begin to pop shortly after you cover the pan. Make sure to listen to the popcorn. Once the popping slows down, remove the popcorn from the heat and allow to cool. Once cooled, transfer the popcorn to a large bowl or pan.

In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tbls of arrowroot powder with about 3 tbls of the honey mixture. Whisk in the arrowroot mixture back into the contents of the honey and sweet potato mixture on the stovetop. Continue to simmer for another minute or two.
- Add about 3-4 tbls of the honey mixture into the popcorn and toss through.
- Serve the popcorn in individual muffin cups or in a large bowl. Finish with a drizzle of the honey mixture on top.

OOOH, I totally want the garlic salt!! LOVE on popcorn 🙂
I would really like to try the popcorn salt!
I am actually interested in the popcorn salt now. I’ve never noticed that. We already use clay and Earthpaste and Real Salt exclusively. I actually recently didn’t have enough cash/didn’t need enough stuff to make a Redmond order and I bought table sea salt from Trader Joe’s…I have been sorely disappointed!
We love Real Salt and would love to try the garlic salt!
perfect timing! I need a snack idea to take to a Halloween party tonight. I’m going to whip this up. Thanks for the inspiration!
I want to try the Seasoning Salt! I have not seen this in the store yet!

I always wanted to make a “caramel-like topping” without the corn syrup. Thanks!
Popcorn salt 🙂 to try on your recipe!
I love using Real Salt. I carry the tiny one in my purse so we always have the best salt wherever we go. I also use the Earthpaste and their other clay products.
I have always wanted to try their seasoned salt though. But I think now I want to try their popcorn salt. Didn’t know they sold that.
This recipe looks so incredibly yummy!
I would most like to try the popcorn salt. What makes it different from regular Real Salt?
I would love to try the popcorn salt. My husband loves air popped popcorn with a little butter and salt, so that would be a great gift for him.
Love Real Salt. Also love the “rock salt” types that require a grinder, so I would start with one like that if they have it. I’d also like to try the season salt.

The Kosher real Salt interests me greatly. thanks.
I already use and love the fine sea salt, but it’d be great to try the kosher salt and the seasoning salts. I’m sure Redmond does them right!
Thanks for the giveaway! I would like to try the seasoning blend the most because I have pitched all of my other premixed seasonings after reading their labels. I miss the convenience!
