All the flavors of a favorite cookie coat this snack of Snickerdoodle Popcorn.

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 10 cup freshly popped popcorn
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 cup white-chocolate chips

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 300ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with foil. Melt butter. Mix cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl.

  2. Pour melted butter over popcorn in a large bowl; toss to coat. Immediately sprinkle with sugar mixture; toss to coat. Divide popcorn between sheets; spread in a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes, shaking pans every 10 minutes. Cool.

  3. Place cream and chocolate chips in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until melted and smooth, 8 to 10 minutes. With a fork, drizzle chocolate mixture over popcorn and let stand until set, about 30 minutes. Break up any clumps and store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
