When I got married, we had a popcorn bar at our reception. Not only because it was super easy, but it looked great, and I am kind of obsessed with popcorn. One of the recipes we used was this cinnamon sugar one, and it seemed to be the most popular flavor out of all four. My husband and I also went to a couple parties/reunions this week, and each time we took a couple batches of this cinnamon sugar popcorn, and everyone loved it. So, why not share it?
It's best to make this using a Whirley-Pop, but if you don't have one, it would probably work just as well in a large pot.
1/4 cup oil (vegetable oil works fine, I like using coconut oil)
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 large cookie sheet or wax paper
Pour the oil into the Whirley-Pop and place 3 popcorn kernels in as well while the oil heats up on Medium heat.
While it's warming up, mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl. You may add the 1/2 cup kernels as well so it's all mixed in one bowl.
Once the three kernels in the Whirley-Pop have popped, you know it's hot enough. Pour the rest of the kernels and the cinnamon sugar into the Whirley-Pop
Stir continuously to avoid burning.
Once all the kernels have popped, immediately remove from heat and pour the popcorn onto your cookie sheet, or wax paper laid out on your counter. I've found that the popcorn cools a lot quicker if you lay it out flat.
And now you have your own delicious cinnamon kettle corn! Enjoy!
