Cinnamon Popcorn II

Quick easy snack that the kid’s can help make – especially if you have an air popper. Beware, this can become addictive!

Original recipe makes 8 cups


2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup unpopped popcorn
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
2 (2.25 ounce) packages cinnamon red hot candies


  1. Heat oil in a large pot or saucepan over medium-high heat. Pour in the popcorn, cover, and shake a couple of times to coat the kernels with oil. When the corn starts to pop, shake pan continuously until popping stops. Pour popped corn into a large paper bag.
  2. Combine the butter, corn syrup and red hot candies in a microwave safe bowl or saucepan. Heat, stirring occasionally until the candies have melted. Pour the hot syrup over the popped corn, and shake the bag for 1 minute, until completely coated. Cool, and serve.
