Snickerdoodle Popcorn

Sharing is caring!

Snickerdoodle Popcorn is buttery kettle corn with a sprinkle of cinnamon cooked right in. It’s highly addictive and a delicious sweet treat for your next family movie night.

When my daughter started requesting cinnamon popcorn, I had no idea how to make that happen. The results of a lot of experimentation and testing is this snickerdoodle popcorn recipe!

Ingredients

3 tbsp canola or other vegetable oil 
⅓ cup popcorn kernels
1 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp salt

Place butter in a small bowl and microwave in 10 second intervals until the butter is melted. 

Set aside. 

Get out a large bowl and set it aside. 

Place the oil and popcorn kernels in a large pot over medium-high heat. 

Stir to combine.

Put a lid on the pot and cook for 1-2 minutes until popcorn kernels begin to sizzle in the oil but have not yet started to pop. 

Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over the kernels. Give it a quick stir to combine. 

Put a lid on the pot. 

Swirl the pot without lifting it from the stove until kernels start to pop. 

Let the popcorn pop until there’s 1-2 seconds between pops. Immediately remove from heat. 

Remove the lid and immediately pour popcorn into a large bowl. 

Drizzle with melted butter and sprinkle with salt. 

Toss the popcorn to combine.

Enjoy! 

Tips on Snickerdoodle Popcorn 

  • Because of the sugar, the popcorn will burn easily. Be sure to immediately remove it from the stove once there’s a couple seconds between pops and immediately remove it from the pot once it’s done.
  • Any high heat, neutral tasting oil will work. Do not use olive oil
  • Make movie night feel extra special and serve your popcorn in mini popcorn boxes!
  • Store any leftover popcorn in a zip top bag for up to 48 hours. 

Cocktail Pairing

Apple Cider Sangria

Go all in on the cinnamon and enjoy your popcorn with crisp, tart Apple Cider Sangria.
