Most of my childhood summers were spent at my Nonna’s house. I loved being with her, she spoke her sentances half in english and then finish them up in italian. As I have said many times before, I loved to watch her cook. She was so at home in the kitchen. Her kitchen had a built in booth and my spot was right in the center (it had the best view). That is the spot I carried out any cooking assignments Nonna gave me. Sometimes it was hanging the freshly made pasta on the drying rack or pinching the ends off the freshly picked green beans or salting the black olives that we had just picked off her tree.
One of my favorite memories was my Nonna making a big bowl of popcorn, beacuse that meant we were going to stay up late and watch The Tonight Show.
So in honor of my Nonna, I made cinnamon brown sugar popcorn! I wish I would have thought of this back then beacuse she would have loved it! She loved anything sweet.
- 5 cups popped popcorn
- 4 tablesppons butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon Himalayn salt or table salt
- Place popcorn in a large bowl.
- in a small sauce pan over medium/low heat, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt until combined.
- Immediately drizzle over popcorn and toss until all popcorn is coated.
To this day popcorn is still my number 1 snack and this cinnamon brown sugar popcorn is my current favorite. I eat it atleast twice a week. I feel like im doing something good for myself, fiber from the popcorn and all the health benefits from cinnamon. If you would like to read more on cinnamon’s health benefits, read about it here.
Enjoy this cinnamon brown sugar popcorn!
Until Next Time…
