After a good red wine hot chocolate, this is a home made treat I propose to you today, to enjoy during your Christmas holidays in front of a movie or a series or for your New Year's Eve if you have planned to do it at home.
This was the first time I made home made popcorn, I used to buy boxes that you put in the microwave but now I'm done because, after all, home made popcorn takes just a few minutes more to prepare and you can control the sugar or fat quantity you use and add your favorite topping or even eat it naked.
I loved this home made popcorn so much I made some as edible gifts to put under the Christmas tree, some with maple syrup and gingerbread topping as in this recipe and some with just melted chocolate for those who are not a fan.

- Prepare two tablespoons next to the bowl, stir the topping and pour it over the popcorn, stir immediately with the spoons to coat all the popcorn.
