Melissa's Cuisine: Apple Cinnamon Popcorn

Apple Cinnamon Popcorn


Early this week I had the honor of attending the first ever Online BlogCon, a fabulous online blog conference put on by Dorothy and Ashton.  The best part about the conference was that I could attend on my on time.  There was no travelling required and I could read the posts in my pajamas if I wanted to!  The speakers were so informative and I met a lot of new bloggers through the Facebook Group.

I learned a lot from the conference and I'm still trying to absorb all the information.  I'm trying to implement some positive changes around here, and I hope that you'll find them to be positive as well.  One change that's already in place (and has been a long time coming) is my Recipe Catalog.  It's the new tab up at the top and I've categorized every recipe on this blog.  I hope that makes it easier for you to find recipes!
 
Mike and I don't go to the movies too often, but when we do, we try to go on a Saturday morning so we can get the matinee pricing.  Then we don't feel too bad about splurging for a popcorn and pop!  The movie theater we go to has a flavor station where you can add your own flavors to your popcorn--anything from ranch to white cheddar to caramel to apple cinnamon.  I love sweet popcorn so it's no surprise that I tend to sprinkle the caramel and apple cinnamon on our popcorn. 

We often have movie nights at home on the weekend, and that means popcorn!  One night I decided that I wanted flavored popcorn.  I ground up some apple chips until they were like powder.  Then I mixed in some cinnamon and sugar and sprinkled it over our popcorn.  It was delicious!  I kept the leftovers in a glass container and now I find myself craving popcorn even when it's not movie night!
 
Apple Cinnamon Popcorn Flavoring
 
1 (2.5 ounce) bag crispy apple chips
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 Tablespoon sugar
 
1.  In a blender (I used our bullet), grind the apple chips until they resemble a powder.
 
2.  Add cinnamon and sugar and blend to mix.  (Feel free to add additional cinnamon or sugar to suit your tastes.)
 
Sprinkle flavoring over popcorn.  Store in an airtight container.

  5. This sounds wonderful, will have to give it a try. We don't have the fancy flavor station at our theatre, butter/oil, take it or leave it and that's it. I love your recipe index. Did you use linky tools to set it up?

    1. Thanks Joan! I didn't use linky tools, instead I just copy and pasted each recipe link. It took a bit of time, but I'm please with how it turned out!

  8. Melissa,
    This sounds delicious. I wish our theater had a flavor station for the popcorn. At least now I can make it at home :) Thanks for sharing at Creative Thursday :)
