Cinnamon Roll Popcorn

image

The best part of watching any movie is the popcorn of course! I have had my favorite caramel corn on my mind  from a candy store on the wharf in Monterey. I finally have made some time to make my own version from scratch for the first time. This sweet crunchy snack tastes like a combination of caramel corn and the inside filling of a cinnamon roll….its amazing and addicting so be careful!

Yield: 6

Ingredients:
10 cups popped plain popcorn; or 1 1/2 microwavable popcorn bags
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup butter; cut into cubes
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup white melting chocolate
1/2 cup white chocolate chips

Steps:
1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. In a large bowl add popped popcorn and pecans. In a microwavable safe bowl add butter, cinnamon, and corn syrup. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes stirring every 30 seconds. Once melted add in vanilla extract and baking soda and mix until combined and consistency is like a syrup.

2. Pour syrup mixture in large bowl and with a spatula, mix until popcorn is coated evenly (about 3 minutes). Pour coated popcorn on a baking sheet lined with foil or a silpat ( what I used). Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
