Truffled Popcorn for the Oscars

In Apps, Snacks & Drinks by Frances Largeman Roth

The Oscars are nearly here and I’m so excited! No, I haven’t seen all the movies this year, but I love the red carpet and the old Hollywood glamour that the night brings. And the snacks aren’t bad either:)

Of course, you have to serve some type of popcorn. And while it’s a low calorie treat, I like to serve it in small individual bowls or disposable Chinese food-style containers (you can get them at party supply stores) to help with portion control. Plus, who really wants to share their popcorn?

Enjoy the show and let me know what you think of the recipe!


  • • 12 cups hot popped popcorn
  • • 2 tablespoons truffle oil
  • • ½ teaspoon sea salt


  1. Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Drizzle it with the truffle oil, sprinkle with the salt, and toss. Provide tongs so guests can fill their bowls or cartons with popcorn. WARNING: It’s addictive!
