This may sound a bit taboo to say, but I’m not really a fan of popcorn. It’s never something I order at the movies, and it’s especially not something I snack on at home. It just doesn’t do it for me, and I’d much rather eat just about anything else. But that’s not to suggest I’m completely averse to absolutely everything and anything popcorn-related. In fact, one of the most memorable desserts I’ve had in recent memory is an homage to the classic snack. After a meal rich with pepita tortillas, beer cheese, and Carolina Gold rice at Bar Takito, the popcorn mousse is a welcoming finale in that it rounds things out on a buttery, caramel-y note that seamlessly combines sweetness with that infamous salty snack.

One of the best things about this dessert is how light it is. This mousse makes all other mousses look like leaden frosting by comparison. Infused with popcorn and butterscotch, the whole thing tastes like a bundle of caramel corn whipped into a silky-smooth puree, with meringue-like lightness.
