’tis the season to be jolly

Today I am sharing my yummy scrummy, cinnamon popcorn recipe. It’s really easy to make and popular with my little nieces as well as adults and all those between! As Christmas approaches it’s really easy to get sucked into the whirlwind of busy! It can feel like a luxury to have some down-time, but actually it is a necessary thing – sooooo this weekend try to ensure you get one evening to snuggle up in front of an old favourite film as a family. This seasonally spiced cinnamon popcorn is the perfect accompaniment.

We have a few films on our Christmas list this year; including Scrooged, Elf, The Grinch, The Polar Express and Home Alone. This popcorn is the perfect seasonal accompaniment with the subtle hint of cinnamon, it’s both sweet and salty and it’s very, very YUM.

I love cinnamon and this is my favourite popcorn ever (Aars still prefers the sweet chilli popcorn). But I have Aars to thank for the idea – as he spotted some cinnamon popcorn for sale in the shops that he wanted to try – but it had dairy in it, so was a no-go. This was my way of giving him the opportunity to taste something similar – he appreciated it, but it was me who got hooked! My little tip is to make sure you make the popcorn a good hour or two before you plan to dig in. This gives it time to cool and set, otherwise you could end up in a bit of a sticky mess! Let me know your recommendations for family Christmas movies 😉

We love popcorn and we love cinnamon - so what could be better then cinnamon popcorn? We love the conflict of salty and sweet with our favourite spice on a popcorn. You need to make this recipe at least an hour before you want to start your cosy film eve and tuck in to a huge bowl together - as it needs to cool and set otherwise you could all end up get very sticky!  

Ingredients:

  • 90g of white cat corn kernels
  • 50g demerara sugar
  • 25ml water
  • 10g sunflower spread
  • 1tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp flaked salt (I use pink Himalayan)

Method:

  1. Pop your popcorn, we have a little popping machine that requires no oil and is safe for children. Lay out a sheet of baking paper on a flat surface ready for the popcorn to cool on post coating.

  2. In a heavy based pan add the sugar and water and heat up until the sugar dissolves. Leave it to simmer on a low heat so the mix can reduce for about 15 mins DO NOT STIR AT ALL whilst it bubbles away! After the 15 minutes are complete take off heat and stir in the spread, cinnamon and salt. 

  3. Once they have fully dissolved and combined pour over your waiting popcorn - I do it in sections in my metal mixing bowl to ensure every piece is covered. Dump the coated popcorn onto a sheet of baking paper and spread out so it can cool completely.

Notes:

 Enjoy your popcorn, your company and your movie! Rai x
