Rosemary Black Pepper Popcorn

Rosemary Black Pepper Popcorn

When I was growing up popcorn was my favorite snack. Throw a bag in the microwave after school, and I was good to go until dinner! And sometimes popcorn was dinner and sometimes it was breakfast too. And don't even get me started with how much popcorn we ate in college!

Popcorn flavored with rosemary, black pepper, and butter

A while ago I stopped buying microwave popcorn, but I love making popcorn on the stove top. It tastes so much better than microwave popcorn, and it's almost as fast.

Popcorn with Rosemary and Black Pepper

And while the popcorn is popping I love melting butter and adding seasonings to flavor the popcorn. I love adding flavors and combinations to spice up popcorn. Here rosemary and black pepper combine with melted butter to add depth.

Rosemary is such a great addition to popcorn and black pepper adds another hit of flavor to punch up the popcorn. Salt and butter tie it all together, and you just can't stop eating the rosemary black pepper popcorn! I love trying new flavors, and now I can't stop adding things to popcorn!

Author: Happy Food Happy Home
Serves: 1-2

1 tablespoon coconut oil
¼ cup popcorn kernels

2 tablespoons salted butter
1 teaspoon chopped rosemary
1 teaspoon black pepper

Kosher salt to taste
  1. Heat coconut oil* over medium high heat in a medium sauce pan with a lid.
  2. Heat the oil until it bubbles around a popcorn kernel dropped in.
  3. Add the popcorn to the hot oil. Toss around in the oil to coat.
  4. Toss the kernels every minute or so until the popcorn is fully popped—when the pauses between the pops are longer than 10 seconds and few kernels remain the pot. Remove from heat.
  5. Combine the butter, rosemary, and pepper in a glass measuring cup.
  6. Microwave for 20 seconds, stir, and microwave for 10 more seconds until the butter is melted.
  7. Add half the popcorn to a large bowl. 
  8. Drizzle half of the butter mixture over the popcorn. Sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt over the popcorn. Use a spoon to toss together.
  9. Add the remaining popcorn, drizzle with remaining butter, and sprinkle with more salt. Toss to combine.
  10. Eat and enjoy!!
*You can use vegetable oil in place of the coconut oil

I still love to eat popcorn, and probably eat too much of it! But changing the flavors I add to popcorn makes it a super delicious treat!


  1. I have been meaning to make popcorn, but with rosemary and cheese. Yours looks great!


    1. I love cheese on popcorn! I bet rosemary and Parmesan would be delicious!
