Today I am sharing a super simple recipe for one of my favorite snacks, truffle parmesan popcorn. Seriously, I eat this popcorn more that I’d like to admit, but it is so good! The truffle salt and parmesan are a great combo. And my secret ingredient (for popcorn in general, not just this one)…ghee. If you haven’t heard of ghee, it is clarified butter, which basically means butter that has the milk solids and water removed from it. It has a stronger “butter” flavor and tastes a little nutty. And the reason it is perfect for popcorn (other than it being extra delicious) is due the lack liquid, it doesn’t make the popcorn soggy! Win win right?
This popcorn is super quick to whip up for a get together, movie night, or if you are like me…an afternoon snack. Give it a try!
- 3 cups plain, popped popcorn
- 1 tbsp melted ghee (or butter)
- 1 tbsp grated parmesan
- 1/4 tsp truffle salt
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- Drizzle melted ghee over popcorn and stir to coat
- Sprinkle parmesan, truffle salt and parsley on top of the popcorn.

Oh. My. Gosh. I am a massive fan of both truffle salt (actually, truffle everything) and popcorn. I need to try this trick with the ghee!! I’ve never had ghee before.Reply

You should definitely try this! And ghee is great for a lot of things. It has a high smoke point so it is great to cook with.
