- Meanwhile finely grate parmesan; melt butter in a small saucepan over the stove or microwave it for 10 seconds until melted.
- Drizzle the truffle oil into the melted butter and stir to incorporate.
- Pour butter-and-truffle-oil mixture over the popcorn and toss gently. Sprinkle with parmesan. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
