Melissa's Cuisine: Churro Popcorn

Friday, April 27, 2012

Churro Popcorn

When I was in youth group, every fall we would go on a work trip to Chicago.  While the projects we did varied from year to year, one thing stayed the same: a visit to the Hispanic foods store.  It was the part of the trip that a lot of us looked forward to the most...well, that plus a trip to Lou Malnati's!  Both were our rewards for some long days of hard work!  A trip to the store just wasn't complete without a fresh churro, or two, or three...

One of my favorite snacks is popcorn, so when I saw this churro popcorn, it called my name!  And then it said, "make".  Luckily for me, I actually had cinnamon chips in the house, so I was able to quickly whip up a batch.  While the popcorn is obviously a different texture than an authentic churro, the flavor is definitely there.  This was great snack, and was perfect for our movie night!
Churro Popcorn

Serves 6

6 cups popped popcorn
1/2 cup cinnamon chips, melted
2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1.  In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, sugar, and cinnamon.

2.  In a large bowl, drizzle the melted cinnamon chips over the popcorn. Toss to coat.

3.  Immediately sprinkle sugar mixture over popcorn.  Toss again to coat.

Let the popcorn cool completely before serving.  Store in an airtight container.
