Parmesan Kale Chip Dusted Popcorn

Parmesan Kale Chip Dusted Popcorn is a pretty and delicious snack that the whole family will enjoy. Just sprinkle ground baby kale chips and Parmesan cheese over hot popcorn and you've got an easy, healthy treat.

You all know by now that I love when my Degustabox subscription box shows up. I never know what deliciousness I'm getting but I always discover some great ingredients! This time my foodie box included Jolly Time Healthy Pop Popcorn and I thought of one of my favorite snacks: Parmesan Kale Chip Dusted Popcorn. 

It's a super simple snack. Make up some crunchy kale chips, crush 'em, and sprinkle them over popcorn with some yummy Parmesan cheese. Looks pretty and adds a healthy boost to your popcorn!
