Let’s start with popping a bag of microwave popcorn and setting it in a large bowl.

You can serve the spiced popcorn in this bowl or transfer it to a clean bowl before serving to your guests.

Melt butter in the microwave and then add in the maple syrup. Pure maple syrup makes a big difference, so go quality on this ingredient!

Mix the butter and syrup together and pour this right over the popcorn. Toss the mixture together so as much of the popcorn is coated as possible.

Now, to add the topping! Sprinkle the spice mixture (salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg) all over the popcorn.

Toss it around as you sprinkle, so as much of the popcorn gets covered with this deliciousness!

This spiced up microwave popcorn is the perfect recipe for a simple and flavorful fall treat! Pairs nicely with our Butterscotch Schnapps Cocktail!
