Hi! I’m Victoria from Creative Home Keeper and I’m thrilled to be posting for you today! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is on Thursday? And this also happens to mean that Friday is the official launch of the Christmas season too! Want a great snack to enjoy with your family for the holiday season? I’m so excited to be sharing with you one of my absolute favorite sweet and savory snacks, which is also a perfect snack to include in your holiday festivities this year too. Popcorn is one of my very favorite snacks. I love it, and I eat it all the time. Plus it is super easy to make too, just a few simple ingredients and a few minutes make a mouth watering, savory treat worthy of just more than movie night. Popcorn on the stove top popped in coconut oil is truly a decadent treat, in fact the coconut oil mixed with a little salt basically eliminates the need for adding melting butter (although I do occasionally because butter, in my opinion, is just about one of the greatest things ever!) While I love simple popcorn, I also love trying out different varieties and ingredients to make the popcorn an even better treat. Today I am sharing with you my favorite sweet and savory popcorn recipe which includes the best sweet combination, cinnamon and sugar. I have such found memories growing up of my mom making me buttered toast with a little sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar. While I’m not much of a chocolate eater (I know, I know! but I do love M&Ms :)), my usual go-to sweet treats involve some sort of cinnamon and sugar combination. It just feels like home. On a whim one day I decided to try out adding some cinnamon and sugar to my popcorn and oh my! It is a delicious combination. Ready for the recipe? Alright here we go… Sweet and Savory Cinnamon Popcorn
- 3 TBSP oil (I use coconut oil, and don’t worry it won’t leave your popcorn tasting like coconuts!)
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 2 TBSP butter, melted (you can omit this, but if helps the cinnamon and sugar coat better, plus it is delicious!)
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1 TSP cinnamon
- 1/4 TSP salt
Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a large, heavy pot. Add the kernels and cover with a lid. For best results, leave the lid slightly ajar to let a little stem escape. Also shake the pot once or twice while the kernels are popping.
Thanks, Victoria! That sounds delish! I will definitely have to try that this holiday season. Check out more from Victoria at Creative Home Keeper!
