Cinnamon and Sugar (Churro) Popcorn

Popcorn is my jam. Cinnamon and sugar or churros – yeah you’re going to get my interest there too! Put them together and you have a ridiculously good snack or sweet treat. Super yum. This recipe is a little too easy for how good it is, so I understand if we can’t be friends anymore. Or better yet we could be the type if friends who shove handfuls of cinnamony- sugary popcorn into our mouths gleefully!

I have a rather retro air popper that I prefer to pop my kernels in, but there are other methods depending on one’s preference for popping corn.
