Are you celebrating Cinco De Mayo today? We are having a party with friends this weekend, so I’m trying to talk Brett into going out to a new Mexican Restaurant tonight. I love Mexican food!
Here is an easy and tasty treat to add to your festivities!
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Utah friends, there is still time to enter the Brooke Bakken Photography Mother’s Day Giveaway . Winner will be announced tomorrow.
1/2cup unpopped popcorn
1/3 cup butter
2/3 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat an oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Pop the popcorn using an air popper according to manufacturer’s directions. Place into a large mixing bowl, and set aside.
Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla, and cook until thick and bubbly. Pour over the popcorn, and stir until the popcorn is evenly coated. Spread the popcorn into a large roasting pan. (my note: there will be some heavier clusters of cinnamon-sugar…those will be the first bites to get picked over!)
Bake in the preheated oven 10 minutes, then turn the heat off, and allow the popcorn to stay in the oven 20 minutes longer. Remove from oven, and cool completely before serving.
