Sometimes I really like to snack on something that is both sweet and salty. There's something about that combination that puts all my cravings to rest and is totally satisfying. So when I went on a gourmet popcorn kick I started thinking of sweet popcorn recipes that I could add a bit of salt to and make the perfect combination.
I went with something a little over the top. I found a recipe for Nutella popcorn. It looked amazing but I thought it lacked a few things. For one it was just begging for some mini marshmallows. Then it needed a bit more salt. I added those in and it made a really delicious sweet popcorn with a touch of saltiness.
