I love popcorn combinations. During the holiday it just seems to be the perfect time to make a big container of something yummy to either give away as small gifts in a bag...or to have on hand for when guests arrive and they want a little something to munch on. I know there are many different variations on here..hope you don't mind just one more! :)

    While oven preheats..make the popcorn...once done popping the popcorn place in an extra large bowl; Set aside.
