Author note: I prefer to pop my own popcorn for this snack, but when time is short and I use purchased popped popcorn, Boom Chicka Pop Sea Salt popcorn is my favorite.

2 tablespoon unsalted butter

1/4 cup light corn syrup

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup brown sugar

10 cups popped popcorn

3/4 cup dark chocolate candy coating

  1. Heat the oven to 250 degrees.
  2. In a small sauce pan, combine the butter, corn syrup, cinnamon extract and vanilla extract. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the popcorn in a large bowl. Pour the corn syrup mixture on top of popcorn and stir to coat.
  4. Next sprinkle the sugar evenly over the popcorn and stir to coat.
  5. Lay the popcorn on one large parchment-lined baking sheet (or two small ones). Place in the oven and cook for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
  7. Melt the chocolate candy coating per the instructions.
  8. Drizzle on top of the popcorn to the desired amount. Let harden and serve.
