When Nancy and I were kids, on very special Saturdays, our Mom would make us Cinnamon Toast.  Crunchy toasted covered in melted butter and sprinkled with delicious cinnamon sugar.  Yum, yum, yum.  We took that classic, replaced the toast with popcorn and voilla … Cinnamon Toast Popcorn.  How does it taste? True story.  Our family ate so much of our test batch that we had to make a second batch so we could take these pictures.  Super yummy.  Thanks Mom!

How to Make Cinnamon Toast Popcorn

You will need:

  • 10 Cups of Popped Popcorn
  • 4 tbsp. Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Cinnamon

Popcorn for Easter Candy Popcorn

Start with approximately 10 cups of popcorn. Make sure you get out all of the un-popped kernels.  You don’t want to bite down on one of those!  We pop our popcorn on the stove (you can find our directions on How to Make Perfect Popcorn here) but you can use air-popped or microwave.

Melt Butter in a small saucepan

Melt butter in a small saucepan.  We used 4 tablespoons of butter for our 10 cups of popcorn.  You should adjust to taste.

Pour butter onto popcorn

Slowly drizzle the button onto the popcorn and stir as you go. You’ll want to lightly cover the popcorn.

Make up a batch of cinnamon sugar

This is our Cinnamon Sugar.  We used 1/4 cup of sugar and then added 1 heaping tablespoon of cinnamon and mixed it together.  We did not use all of this Cinnamon Sugar on our Cinnamon Toast Popcorn – we save about half of this to use on future pieces of Cinnamon Toast.

Add Cinnamon Sugar to buttered popcorn

Sprinkle the buttered popcorn with the Cinnamon Sugar and stir.

Mix Cinnamon Toast Popcorn

Continue adding the Cinnamon Sugar until it is covered to your liking.

Pour Cinnamon Toast Popcorn onto a Cookie Sheet

Now pour the popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with foil or a silpat liner.  Beware of popcorn pilferers!!

Our family loves this popcorn so it has never lasted longer than a day at our house.  This popcorn definitely tastes best right after it is made but will keep for a few days in an airtight container. The popcorn is a little chewier the next day but it still tastes good.

  1. What are you supposed to do once the popcorn is on the cookie sheet? I assume put in the oven because it then says allow to cool. You didn’t say what temperature or how long it should be in the oven. Thank you!

    • Hi – You don’t need to put the popcorn in the oven. It actually tastes super delicious while it is warm. But it will setup a bit if you allow it to cool. Super easy and boy do I love it!!!
