Let’s Make Parmesan Truffle Popcorn!

There’s a local restaurant that has this Parmesan Truffle Popcorn on its menu as an appetizer. My mom and I decided to give it a try. So, we ordered it and we were instantly hooked! This stuff is so wonderfully flavored and addictive, that we had the entire bowl emptied in no time. 

I love this recipe because it would not only make a great snack for movie night, but it doubles as a really easy appetizer recipe if you’re entertaining.

While popcorn is delicious on its own, the combination of parmesan, truffle, and a little fresh chive takes this to a whole new level and makes it taste like a gourmet treat.

Truffle and truffle oil is definitely a unique taste. It’s really difficult to compare it to anything. Some say it has a slight garlic flavor with a deep musky aroma. I really enjoy it in pasta dishes and apparently on popcorn too!

What’s the difference between black truffle oil and white truffle oil?

I’ve done a bit of research and the general consensus is that black truffle oil is a bit strong and earthier compared to the more delicate, onion/garlic fragrance found in white truffle oil. 

Which do you want for this Parmesan Truffle Popcorn? That’s up to you! Both will work. If I had to recommend one, I’d go with the white truffle oil. 

Truffle oil can add a strong flavor. If you’re new to using it, I recommend starting out with less and adding more to taste.

Ingredients: 

Now that you know all the ins and outs of truffle oil, let’s get into the other ingredients you’ll need for this Parmesan Truffle Popcorn. 

  • Popcorn  –  You can use whatever brand you’d like. I used Sea Salt Smart Pop and found it to work great for this recipe.
  • Truffle Oil – I picked up my truffle oil at HomeGoods in their gourmet section, but most grocery stores seem to carry it these days. 
  • Shredded Parmesan Cheese – Freshly shredded is always best.
  • Salt and Pepper – Use according to your taste. Since my popcorn was salted, it didn’t need much. Try tasting your popcorn first and add more if needed.
  • Chopped Chives – The chives aren’t necessary, but I love the added color, freshness, and flavor. 

That’s all you need! Let’s pop up a batch!
