Cinnamon Bun Popcorn

It’s Monday, the start of another week. The start of more Covid homeschooling, back to work from home offices, juggling everyone’s schedules and figuring out who needs what device for what online meeting. Whew, we’re exhausted already thinking about it! Does anyone else agree? The changes of home quarantine has brought on elements of more ‘busy’?!

To those of you who have found new cycles of time and are experimenting more in the kitchen, we congratulate you! This is so exciting to see.

Those of you who can’t even think about finding the time to bake or trial a recipe right now, it’s absolutely alright! We have EVERYONE covered with our cinnamon bun popcorn. It tastes like the luxury of homemade cinnamon buns prepared in under 45 minutes!

Pull out your popcorn kernels, cinnamon and roaster. Lets make some sweet, carmel corn. Although we caution you: it’s highly addictive and incredibly delicious. It won’t last long with the entire family around!

We love the crunch of popcorn! It’s such a great affordable treat that literally every age loves. The addition of carmel and cinnamon make this recipe extra special. Make Monday an evening of fun. Who has to wait for the weekend? It’s these small things that will make a difference right now during these unpredictable days.
