Cinnamon Brown Sugar Popcorn


Cinnamon brown sugar popcorn

Most of my childhood summers were spent at my Nonna’s house.  I loved being with her, she spoke her sentances half in english and then finish them up in italian.  As I have said many times before, I loved to watch her cook.  She was so at home in the kitchen.  Her kitchen had a built in booth and my spot was right in the center (it had the best view).  That is the spot I carried out any cooking assignments Nonna gave me.  Sometimes it was hanging the freshly made pasta on the drying rack or pinching the ends off the freshly picked green beans or salting the black olives that we had just picked off her tree.

One of my favorite memories was my Nonna making a big bowl of popcorn, beacuse that meant we were going to stay up late and watch The Tonight Show.

Cinnamon Brown Sugar Popcorn

So in honor of my Nonna, I made cinnamon brown sugar popcorn!  I wish I would have thought of this back then beacuse she would have loved it!  She loved anything sweet.

    This sounds delicious! Which reminds me of something I’ve been meaning to share with foodies like you (It’s about chocolate): if you put a chocolate bar in the micro for 3 seconds and then salt it- and enjoy you are in for a real treat! Just had to share.

    You have combined two of my fav things! Popcorn and cinnamon. Not sure why I haven’t ever thought of this. Thanks for the recipe and sharing your sweet memories with your Nonna.

    I always loved the sweet and saltiness of caramel popcorn, and your cinnamon version sounds great! I’ll give this a try on our next movie night. Thanks for sharing the recipe and the memories with you Nonna 🙂

    I’ve never had cinnamon brown sugar popcorn. This one really looks good and looks yummy, too. It looks like it’s gluten free as well. Yummy for me and my for gluten-allergic daughter.

    I was going through your recipe and I noticed that the link for the health benefits of Cinnamon is no longer working.

    Your page is linked to with link anchor “here”, but the page is no longer working.

    Hope this helps – This page has more number of Cinnamon benefits and every fact is backed with direct links to original studies.
