Okay, so there probably wasn’t popcorn at the original Thanksgiving feast but there most definitely was corn itself. It’s kind of the whole reason why we even have Thanksgiving to begin with (you know since the gathering was a celebration of the Pilgrims’ first corn harvest and all). And since popcorn is the greatest thing EVER, we’ve created a popcorn recipe that’s perfect to pop some fun into your Thanksgiving celebration this year.
½ cup of popcorn kernels
4 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of butter
½ cup of pure maple syrup
½ teaspoon of sea salt
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon of ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon of ground ginger
½ cup of dried cranberries
½ cup of chopped walnuts, pecans, and/or almonds
3 tablespoons of light brown sugar

Grave Plot: Jack, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, becomes obsessed with Christmas. He employs the help of Halloween Town’s other residents (including bats, ghouls, and goblins) to recreate Christmas in lieu of their annual Halloween festivities.
Fright Factor: Oogie Boogie is slightly terrifying and not everyone’s accustomed to limbs and heads being detachable. But it’s animated. So it’s not super scary or anything.
Popcorn Pairing: Monster Munch. Crunchy popcorn cloaked in sweet fruit flavors is sure to be a hit in your Halloween Town. (And yeah, it does happen to match the movie’s color scheme.
