Let’s be real, churros are one of the best desserts ever created. Are they a doughnut? Sort of…Fried and rolled in sugar, they serve the best of both worlds: sweet and savory.
Popcorn can be so #basic and we wanted to amp up our date nights at home by creating a churro popcorn recipe. This stuff is addicting (everyone in Gavin’s office= will agree)! It feels a bit like a cross between puppy chow (or muddies buddies depending on what you call it) and a cinnamon roll. Prepping this dish, literally takes under 5 minutes. The hardest part about cooking this snack is calling around to grocery stores to ensure they have cinnamon chips. These are next to the chocolate chips in the baking aisle, by the way.
- 2 bags microwave popcorn
- 1 bag cinnamon chips
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 stick of butter(so, this isn’t the healthiest recipe…)
In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. Pop the popcorn as directed. Melt the butter and cinnamon in a saucepan on medium heat, stir to combine. Gently pour the cinnamon chips over popcorn and fold to coat the popcorn. Add the powdered sugar mixture.
Serve right away and store any leftovers in a Ziploc bag.
