But Is She Really Thirfty: Churro Popcorn

 

Today I wasn't feeling fantastic--but family still has to eat, right?  I made a quick and easy dinner and then my oldest little boy looked at me and said "That was great, Momma, now what's for dessert?".  So I quickly assessed what we had.  Popcorn, sugar, cinnamon.  I popped online for a minute and found this divine recipe. SO easy and simple.  It was also cheap and tasted like a Churro.  Thus, I have renamed it Churro popcorn.  Delish!

Ingredients

  •   1/2cup unpopped popcorn
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Pop the popcorn using an air popper according to manufacturer's directions. Place into a large mixing bowl, and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla, and cook until thick and bubbly. Pour over the popcorn, and stir until the popcorn is evenly coated. Spread the popcorn into a large roasting pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven 10 minutes, then turn the heat off, and allow the popcorn to stay in the oven 20 minutes longer. Remove from oven, and cool completely before serving.
