Honey and Orange Popcorn

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by LAURIE

I love popcorn and even have a cookbook devoted to it!! Since I learned that I have diverticulitus I dont eat it as much and am really careful when I do but sometimes you just gotta live! This recipe is one that is so different you gotta try it. These days I leave out the seeds cause I absolutely cant have seeds but it is truly good anyway you make it!

What a wonderfuly different snack! I didn't have pumpkin seeds so I used cashews. Never would have imagined these ingredients together, thanks for posting.
