TGIF: Time to Pop Some Corn (Recipe: Junk Food Popcorn)

make cinnamon sugar popcorn

I’m hoping that no one’s going to tell me there’s a worldwide shortage of popcorn. ‘Cause it is one great snack to enjoy with your family. It’s relatively inexpensive, easy to make, and tastes great. We enjoy it a number of ways: air popped with butter, cooked on the stove for kettle corn, baked in the oven for what we call “Junk Food Popcorn” (recipe follows), and simply sprinkling cinnamon sugar on buttered popcorn.

Consider popping some tonight and snacking with your sweeties. Check out these links for other fun popcorn ideas:

  1. I posted a recipe for caramel corn on my blog last night. The recipe came from my husbands grandmother. It is basically the same recipe with small differences. We love caramel or junk food popcorn at our house. Thanks.

  2. You should have a warning on the Caramel Corn recipe. It is seriously addicting! Whenever I make it, I eat almost the entire thing on my own.

  3. umm…about the popcorn shortage idea…. a simular article was in my area paper today.

    I love your blog

    Great site, Lynn. Those PB bars sound real good.

    Thanks l, for the heads’ up. I knew it had to come sooner or later. I think it’s just a conspiracy to raise grocery prices.

  5. We’re starting a Saturday night family night and I’m hoping to add popcorn to the snack list 🙂
