'Our family can't get enough of this light cinnamon-sweet popcorn,' offers Naomi Yoder of Leesburg, Indiana. The baked kernels are wonderfully crunchy and coated just right. Try mixing some up to have on hand as an anytime nibble.

I halved the recipe and doubled the topping. I found out it's VERY important to make sure you let the brown sugar topping COOL and not to pour directly on the popcorn. When I made this the first time, my popcorn literally melted to almost nothing! The topping was tasty and will try again. Read More

A great popcorn snack that isn’t candy coated! Here were my alterations to an already excellent recipe. 1. 2/3 cup unpopped popcorn, cooked on the stove. 2. Use the same pan to make the sauce. The pan was already hot so the process went quickly. 3. Omit salt in the sauce and increase butter to ¼ cup. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes. 4. Generously sprinkle popcorn mixture with salt and bake at 250 for 20 minutes, stirring once after 10 minutes. Some reviewers mentioned their popcorn shrinking in size when they poured the sauce on. I don’t seem to have that problem and recommend yellow popcorn that has been air popped or cooked on the stove. Imagine white chocolate drizzled over the top for parties or gift giving.

Excellent. Made this Halloween afternoon, and was a much better treat to munch on than candy. I think I'll make this for my bunco group to munch on too. Used 1/4 cup butter and not quite 4 quarts popcorn. Hint.... put about 3 T unpopped popcorn in a paper lunch sack. Fold down the paper sack a couple of times. Microwave about 2 minutes. WATCH it though... don't walk away. 3T unpopped makes about 1 qt. popped. Read More

This was very good. Kettle corn with cinnamon. It wasn't hard to make. A little time consuming, but not bad. It's also so much cheaper to make than buy. Read More

My family loved this! Only thing I did differently was I made the syrup on the stovetop rather than the microwave, and it was great. Read More
