Snack time is so much more fun with a homemade mix of freshly popped corn, sweet dried fruit, crunchy nuts, spices, and zesty Canadian Parmesan cheese! It’s just the thing to satisfy hungry athletes after practice or movie-night munchies.
1. In a small bowl, combine cheese, chili powder, and paprika.
2. In a large, heavy pot with a lid, combine oil and popcorn kernels. Cook, covered, over medium heat for about 5 minutes, shaking pot constantly, until popcorn is popped. Remove from heat and carefully remove the lid (watching for late-popping kernels).
3. Drizzle melted butter over hot popcorn, stirring to coat as evenly as possible. Sprinkle in cheese mixture; add raisins, dried apples, sunflower seeds, and almonds. Toss well with a spatula to combine evenly.
