Living in my dorm this year, I've found that I have a true friend: popcorn. I've had so much popcorn throughout my time at college that I'm surprised I am not bleeding it. It was the best decision of my life to buy the Kirkland Brand 180-pack popcorn box over Christmas break at Costco, but I'm starting to get a little bored of plain ole' popcorn. That is why I found this cake batter popcorn recipe. I had some cake batter left from my last recipe article, a cake batter dip. This cake batter popcorn recipe is fairly easy and great to make for just about any occasion.
