Movies and popcorn go together like peanut butter and jelly — one should never happen without the other. With this weekend’s Golden Globes kicking off awards seasons, I’ve been on a mission to watch all the nominated films and this Toasted Coconut Kettle Corn has been my snacking sidekick. Honestly, my mission is a fun but pretty futile task seeing as I never seem to have time to watch movies. Even so, there are a lot of seriously good ones this year: I mean, American Hustle if only for Jennifer Lawrence’s awesome 70s hair, Rush because I secretly think F-1 car racing is effing fantastic, and Dallas Buyers Club because Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey are perfection salad.
I’ve got a lot more movies to go (Her, Philomena, 12 Years A Slave, Gravity) before Sunday’s awards and I’m staying fueled up with this Toasted Coconut Kettle Corn. And, since the weekend’s almost here, I plan on pairing this kettle corn with this pear-cardamom bubbly cocktail because bubbles make everything better!
