Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Popcorn Recipe

In honor of National Popcorn day, I decided it was only appropriate that I whip up a “sweet & gooey” Popcorn Recipe.  The staple “sweet & gooey” popcorn recipe in our house is my Father-in-law Dave’s Carmel Popcorn Recipe. Hello, Scrumptious. However, I’ve already posted his recipe on our blog so it was time for me to come-up with a new recipe.  Here is a fun Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Popcorn Recipe I created yesterday.  It was delicious, but Dallan wants it to be a little more carmelly. So, next time I whip this up I’m going to incorporate some sweetened condensed milk.

Please excuse my picture, I took this at night and the lighting was horrible.

Homemade cinnamon and brown sugar popcornIngredients:

  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 3/4-1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Rum
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup popping corn kernels
  • 3 Tablespoons Popcorn Oil
  • Pinch of Salt


  1. Mix Popcorn Oil with Kernels and make according to your machine’s directions.  Set Aside.
  2. Heat butter and brown sugar in a medium-large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook, stirring often until the butter is melted and well incorporated into the sugar, and the sauce comes to a simmer.
  4. Reduce the heat and whisk rum and cinnamon into the sauce.
  5. Let simmer for another 4 minutes, then remove the sauce from heat.  Stir in pinch of salt.
  6. In a mixing bowl, add six cups of popcorn.  Pour sauce over popcorn and toss thoroughly until all the popcorn is coated with sauce.
  7. Serve Immediately.
