This Popcorn Proves That Buffalo + Ranch Are The Ultimate Combo

By all accounts, this shouldn't be good: popcorn covered in Buffalo sauce and ranch seasoning. But then you taste it, and you understand. This party snack is many things. It's a little spicy—but that good kind of Buffalo-sauce spicy that doesn't as much melt your tongue as it does make you want more. It's a little salty—because that's what a packet of ranch seasoning is...a super-savory concentrated flavor bomb. It's buttery—the type of buttery that's almost too much butter (like, maybe that piece is a little too soggy?), but you don't even care because you've already eaten half the bowl and you're licking your fingers.

Make this snack for your next movie night/BBQ/game day and watch how everyone destroys it. Just have plenty of napkins available...and enough ingredients to make a second batch.
