Make Ahead Monday-Cinnamon Bun Popcorn
Are you tired of me and my obsession with Our Best Bites yet? I hope not because you are getting another great make ahead idea today courtesy of them. Cinnamon Bun Popcorn. Even the name sounds delicious. This is like regular caramel corn but with a cinnamon bun flair. It is perfect for fall and all the different occasions you have coming up in which you need to take a treat. You will want to make a double batch if you have no resistance like myself and plan on sharing any of this with someone else. The recipe includes a note that you can use microwave popcorn rather than air popped but to use a natural flavor low in salt and butter. I would like to take a culinary liberty here and just say there is no shame in using full on butter flavor microwave popcorn in this recipe. In fact I suggest it-it takes this over the top (and all caramel corn for that matter). I omitted the nuts and used white chocolate rather than almond bark. We devoured it in one night-hence the need for a double batch.
