I love the white chocolate in this recipe. Never would have thought to include it but it ties everything together perfectly! We served this at movie night last weekend and will be making it again.
So glad you liked it! 🙂
I was craving something sweet last night in the middle of my holiday movie binge and decided to make this popcorn. My only complaint is that it's TOO GOOD and I don't know how I'm not going to make this every night.
Haha I get it! It's so addictive!!
I knew this snack would be a hit with my family because Cinnamon Toast Crunch was the kids' favorite cereal growing up. I made it for game night after Thanksgiving and everyone devoured it - thanks for starting a new family tradition!
Wonderful! I'm so glad it was a hit!
The sweet cinnamon sugar flavors with the popcorn is heavenly
Thank you! I love these flavors too!
My kids peeked over my shoulder when I came across your recipe and I had to make it IMMEDIATELY! 😂 It came together so quickly and they were able to help, which made them so proud of themselves! What a delicious recipe!
So great to hear that! Thanks!
What an amazing idea! Cinnamon Toast Crunch is my all-time favorite cereal. I think I snack on it more than I eat it for breakfast though. This popcorn is going to level up my snacking game!
Yay! Hope you love it!
Amazing sweet popcorn recipe with cinnamon dust. It’s great when you feel snacky but don’t want a buttery popcorn
Exactly! I love the flavors!
Great recipe! So kid-friendly. My nephew couldn’t stop eating it.
