This one didn't work for us. We should have mixed it with some melted butter, then tossed it all together, but as it is it all ended up at the bottom of the bowl.

We recently got an air popper to make our own popcorn. After trying out a few different recipes, this has become our favourite. We have now stocked up on ranch dressing mix packets just so we can have it whenever we want. We use melted butter to help the mixture adhere to the popcorn. Delicious!

What can I say-fabulous-salty, sweet, smoky, bbq flavor. Only thing we did is use our kettle popper and use peanut oil for the cooking. Seriously-who wants to eat microwave popcorn that tastes like cardboard? A new snack favorite.
