I found this yummy popcorn recipe & wanted to try it for my book club. Unfortunately, I can't find the link again, but I remember the recipe. It's kind of like kettle corn, with a snickerdoodle twist. The ladies loved it! And I found an awesome method for popping popcorn in the microwave thanks to Pinterest. It's fast and easy and perfect if you don't own an air popper.
1 c. popcorn kernels
2 brown paper lunch bags
3 T. butter
1/4 c. sugar
1 T. water
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
1. You will be popping the popcorn in 2 batches. Place 1/2 c. of popcorn kernels in 1 paper bag. Fold over a couple times & stand upright in the microwave. Pop on HIGH for 2 1/2-3 minutes. Repeat with the remaining popcorn.
2. Pour popcorn in a large bowl for mixing.
3. Melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Add the rest of the ingredients & stir to combine. Drizzle over popcorn and toss to coat.
4. Pour popcorn onto a cookie sheet & bake at 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes. This will guarantee crispy (not soggy) popcorn.
