Churro Popcorn

Where has the time gone? One day I’m blogging in March and the next, April (which is creeping flying closer to May – like, two days close). March kept me crazy busy with kitchen renovations and visiting family. April has been keeping me busy with a new (and very exciting, I might add) project that I can’t wait to reveal soon. *jumps up and down*

We finally renovated our kitchen (actually, it’s still a work in progress) and what a process/experience that has been! When it’s all said and done I hope to share some before, during, and after photos with a little on how we did it, but for now let me just say that sometimes there is a reason you pay professionals to do things for you… It’s not all Fixer Upper and Property Brothers, people. It’s real life everything is out of order and I’m tired of eating fast food and can’t wait to cook an actual meal again. In the end it’s all good but wow, what a process!

I need some popcorn. Popcorn covered in butter. And cinnamon sugar. And maybe some chocolate too. Yes, this my friends, is what I am calling Churro Popcorn. I’m sure it’s been done before, but I refuse to check on this fact so that in my mind of blissful ignorance, mine is the brain behind this recipe. ;^) To me, it seems kind of silly to call this churro popcorn, as popcorn is nothing close to churros. But it was a better name than just calling it cinnamon sugar coated popcorn ⇐ see what I mean?

Churro Popcorn | Sempre Dolce This popcorn is so easy peasy (and um, addicting!), I really shouldn’t be posting it in recipe format, but here you go!

The lowdown: Popcorn that is coated in butter and then finished with a cinnamon sugar mixture (and…maybe some chocolate too) is sure to please all. Easy as pie to put together and super addicting, this sweet snack would be perfect for parties and gatherings.

  • 8 C. popcorn, popped
  • 1/2 C. granulated sugar
  • 1/2-1 tbsp. (it depends on your level of affection for cinnamon) cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp. butter


  1. In microwave safe bowl or in a small saucepan on the stove, melt butter; set aside.
  2. If you have not already done so, pop your corn (you will need 8 C. popped).
  3. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  4. Place popcorn in a large mixing bowl (I like to use our giant mixing bowl - makes it easier for tossing :). Pour butter over popcorn in increments, tossing and stirring to coat between increments.
  5. Shake cinnamon sugar mixture over popcorn, again doing this in increments and tossing/stirring to combine between increments.
  6. Mix (I used my hands) until popcorn has been well coated in cinnamon sugar.
  7. If desired, drizzle melted chocolate over popcorn.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
