Cinnamon Popcorn

18 Feb

20120218-071619.jpg Torrential rains outside last night! Yikes. Last night was a stay-at-home-and-rent-a-Redbox night if I ever knew one. Rafe wasn’t feeling so hot either–he’s developing an allergy to something, but I’ll be damned if we can’t figure out what it is. So we stayed at home, rented Planet of the Apes, and basically had popcorn for dinner. Both kinds– salty and sweet. Sweet was adapted from this.


  • 1/2 c popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/4 c unsalted butter
  • generous tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk (like SoDelicious)
  • 1/3 c powdered sugar


  • Melt the butter and mix cinnamon in a bowl.
  • Whisk together the coconut milk and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Place canola and popcorn in a large-bottomed pot (try to make sure that most kernels get coated with canola). Put lid on tightly and turn pot on high heat. Shake pot from side to side while it is heated (don’t stop, or else kernels will burn). Once you heat the popcorn stop popping for ~20 sec or so, take off heat.
  • Shake popcorn out of pot and onto rimmed baking sheet. Pour the butter mixture on top, tossing to get even coating. Then pour the icing on top, tossing again.

Mmmm, movie night!
