Holiday Spirit

I have really wacky cravings this time of year because every commercial or holiday-related TV show reminds me of ‘holiday food.’ I have an enormous sweet tooth so this usually translates to desserts. I ate my fair share of those on Thanksgiving, but my thought process today went a little like this: “I want chocolate. I could bake cookies. I wish I had a croissant. I wish I had a croissant and then a bowl of melted chocolate to dip it in. I want popcorn.” Anyone else think like I do?

Despite my insanity, I decided that I actually did want popcorn, but popcorn with a little flare. When I was little my mom got me a sleepover party book with all sorts activities and ‘kid friendly’ recipes inside. One of my favorite things to make when I had friends over was popcorn with cinnamon, sugar and chocolate chips. I was inspired by that today when I made a big bowl of popcorn with a heaping 1/2 tablespoon each of cocoa powder and cinnamon, and a pinch of sea salt to split with my roommate:

This popcorn is the perfect festive accompaniment to “The Santa Claus,” which happens to be my favorite holiday movie. What’s your favorite thing to snack on during holiday movies?
