Cinnamon Popcorn Recipe

Cinnamon Popcorn Recipe
Preheat: 250
Time: 30-40 minutes, plus cooling time

1 bag butter flavored microwave popcorn
1 cup dry roasted peanuts--optional, but highly recommended!
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick butter
1/4 cup syrup (original recipe called for light corn syrup I used regular syrup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 squares white almond bark (or substitute white chocolate chips)

Pop bag of microwave popcorn according to package directions.  (I use smart pop 94% fat don't need massive butter flavor here.) Spread on large parchment-lined baking sheet, removing unpopped kernels.  Spread peanuts over popcorn.

Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon in a medium microwave safe mixing bowl.  Slice butter and place pats on top of cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Drizzle corn syrup over the contents of bowl.  Microwave for 2 minutes, then stir.  Microwave for 30 seconds.  Stir.  Microwave for 30 more seconds.  Stir in vanilla and baking soda.

Drizzle cinnamon sauce over popcorn and peanuts.  Bake for 20 minutes at 250 degrees, stirring popcorn halfway through.

Melt almond bark in a small microwave safe bowl or liquid measuring cup according to package directions.  Drizzle over baked popcorn.  Allow to cool until chocolate has set.  Break into pieces and enjoy!
I found this recipe on Stay at Home Artist and made it yesterday. It is delicious. It reminds me of cinnamon rolls. It would be great to make for holiday gifts to put in little gift bags. I didn't have any corn syrup so I used regular syrup in mine and it was yummy.
