Cinnamon Popcorn is made with honey, ground cinnamon and cinnamon chips that add a new tasty twist to popcorn. This cinnamony, sweet popcorn is the perfect anytime snack. Set out a big bowl of cinnamon popcorn and watch it disappear.
Popcorn is a special variety of dried corn that pops open and puffs up when heated. This transformation occurs because of a high amount of natural moisture trapped inside the hull, turning the kernel inside-out. Popcorn comes in many styles, from white to yellow to red and blue. From plain to flavored and from oil-popped to air-popped. Unpopped popcorn can be stored at room temperature for about a year but retains its natural moisture, (which means it will produce larger popped kernels) better if stored airtight in the refrigerator or freezer.
Delicious popcorn with a great cinnamon flavor.
- 16 cups air-popped popcorn (about 2/3 cup un-popped popcorn)
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- salt, to taste
- 1 to 2 cups cinnamon chips
Preheat oven to 350º Spray jelly-roll pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Place air-popped popcorn in a large bowl.
Stir honey, butter and cinnamon in a small saucepan over low heat until butter is melted and mixture is smooth; immediately pour over popcorn. Toss with a spoon to evenly coat, pour onto prepared pan; bake 12 to 14 minutes or until coating is golden brown and appears crackled, stirring twice during baking. Sprinkle with salt to taste. Let cool on pan for 5 minutes. (As popcorn cools, coating becomes crisp.) When cool, stir in cinnamon chips.
Kitchen Tip: Active dry yeast will keep 6 months past the expiration date if frozen. Place the yeast directly in the freezer in its original vacuum-sealed packaging. If opened, seal tightly in plastic wrap. You can use it at a later date without thawing.
