Popcorn is a popular snack in our house. It’s easy and pretty healthy – especially if you use the Whirley-Pop we love so much. Most of the time it’s of the butter and salt variety popped on the stove. Sometimes I’m in the mood for a salty and sweet snack though and then kettle corn is the answer.

We recently did some experimenting and found adding cinnamon to the mix brings it over the top. Cinnamon Kettle Corn is the perfect movie night food or afternoon snack.

In my opinion, cooking is all about making things fit the tastes of your family. If you are trying to cut back on sugar, eliminate a tablespoon or two. Love salt? Add some more. My husband loved the popcorn with 3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Me, I like it with 1. But anyway you make it, it’s some good (and addicting) stuff!

Once, I attempted to make this healthier by using sucanat. Umm, let’s just say everything had to be tossed. I think the higher moisture content caused it to burn. I use the fair trade cane sugar with no problems though.

You can find your popcorn kernels anyplace from Wal-Mart and sometimes Aldi to online at Amazon and Vitacost (<— If you sign up using my referral link, you’ll receive $10 off your first order if it’s $30 or more.)

Cinnamon Kettle Corn
 
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup popcorn kernels
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • ¾-1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛-1/4 teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Put oil and 3 popcorn kernels in your popper. Turn heat to medium (or a smidge over).
  2. Combing sugar and cinnamon.
  3. Once all 3 kernels pop, add remaining popcorn and the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Give the pan a stir/shake. Then take a silicone scraper and stir and scrape the bottom and sides of the pan quickly. (It helps break up and dissolve the sugar.)
  4. Close lid and use the handle to stir if you are using a Whirley-Pop or shake the pot every couple seconds.
  5. When finished popping, pour into a big bowl and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Enjoy!

Mmm. The perfect snack. Leave the yucky microwaved stuff behind. With coconut oil, this is the BEST! New movie night tradition.

Frozen Grapes! Such a genius idea and they make the easiest snack ever. Plus, they are Whole30 approved!

The best alfredo sauce. So creamy, flavorful, and super easy! We love this recipe.

      Thanks, Carrie! We are huge popcorn lovers in our house as well. Kenna as asked for “cinnamon kettle corn” many times since we first made it. Yum – easy, healthy, and affordable. We are doing pretty good – the kids fighting colds and I think Spencer is cutting molars. . . that’s always fun. But he did better last night and I slept a 5 hour stretch for my first time ages. :-) And I feel like we are finally getting into a good New Year routine. Fun new stuff on your blog – such a great family you have.
