Healthy Popcorn Medley

One of the best snacks to mindlessly munch on is popcorn. Whether you are in the movie theater, watching TV, or doing homework in your room, popcorn is a great light snack. And popcorn doesn’t always have to just be butter flavored. There are so many fun and creative ways to spice up your popcorn without adding too many calories. The flavors in this recipe are vanilla cinnamon sugar, chocolate cayenne, and chili lime. If you like it salty or sweet, there is a popcorn recipe out there for you. I wrapped the different flavors up in a wax paper cone in order to serve for guests at a party. Enjoy!
