I've been on a big popcorn kick lately. It's such a great blank canvas snack, so you can top it with just about anything. I am especially fond of turning desserts into popcorn toppings.
One of my favorites is this browned butter snickerdoodle popcorn. I used browned butter, which is one of the most delicious foods ever.
Then, I dusted it with cinnamon and sugar and topped it with a cinnamon drizzle. The cinnamon-sugar mixture is enough for a generous dusting, so if you don't like things very sweet, or if you want more of a cinnamon-y, sweet and salty, kettle sort of snack, then cut the cinnamon-sugar mixture portion of the recipe in half.
This browned butter snickerdoodle popcorn is such an easy snack or dessert! It's great for movie night or as a game day snack.
