October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month and National Apple Month and National Pretzel Month!
As a child, my brother and I ate popcorn daily after school. I still love a big bowl of salty popcorn, but I recently discovered a better way to enjoy this snack.
Adding dried fruit and pretzels to popcorn makes a wonderful combination of salty and sweet, crunchy and chewy.
(Makes 6 servings)
- 5 cups popped popcorn
- 3 cups pretzels
- 1.5 cups dried apples
- 3/4 cup dried cranberries or raisins
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- Combine dried apples and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir until apples are coated with cinnamon.
- In a large bowl, mix apples with the other ingredients.
- Eat and enjoy!
