The great thing about this popcorn recipe is that it’s not hard to make at all. And the flavors of cinnamon are so awesome, too. We love to make this all year long but it’s especially good during the holiday months. Pair this up with a nice glass of eggnog and snuggle up in front of the fire and you’re certain to be in for a fun treat.

I love the flavor of this popcorn and I like to attribute it to the air popped popcorn. It makes the popcorn lighter and fuller and I also find that I have fewer kernels in the bottom of my bowl as well.

Just be certain to make up some extra because it’s going to disappear fast!

Directions to make Cinnamon Popcorn

The really cool part about this popcorn recipe is that your oven gets to join in on the fun, too! All you have to do is make certain that you pop up the popcorn and the mixture is the only thing left to make.

I really suggest that you use parchment paper because this can be quite the sticky mess. Spread out the popcorn easily so that you get all the popcorn pieces covered.

And if you want a tip..make certain that you stir the mixture in the saucepan until it boils and starts to thicken.

Just be careful that you don’t burn yourself in the process.

Once you decide that it’s time to add to the popcorn, you need to make certain that you’re covering the mixture all the way.

10. Remove the popcorn from the oven and while it is cooling, place the white chocolate in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat for 35 seconds. Stir well, and reheat as needed to melt completely.

11. Stir the coconut oil into the melted chocolate to make it nice and smooth and drizzle over the popcorn.

  1. Hi
    I was looki g at your cinnamon bun popcorn recipe. It losts 1/2 cup granulated sure in the igredients but I don’t see where to add it in the directions. Do I add it along with the brown sugar?

    1. Just fixed it, you can add them both together.

  2. On the recipe for Cinnamon Popcorn Recipe, it has coconut milk as an ingredient, but in the recipe is has coconut oil. Which is the correct ingredient?

    1. Sorry I’ve fixed that, it should be coconut oil.
