Ah, cinnamon popcorn. It has long been my favorite flavor from Topsy’s, our local popcorn maker. Topsy’s is a staple in most (maybe all) of Kansas City’s big malls/shopping centers. Even our dying neighborhood mall with approximately 7 stores still has a Topsy’s, which smells amazingly good as Mike and I walk laps there in the winter. Yup, we are mall walkers. We’re still cool though. Well, we think we are cool.
Anyway, Topsy’s is awesome, but I wanted to recreate the cinnamon popcorn at home. I doubted my ability to do this, but this recipe is spot on. It is so good.
I used an air popper to pop the corn. The air popper is a relatively new addition to my kitchen and I love it. I wish I bought one years ago. It is really the only way I can make popcorn without burning a large percent of the kernels. It is one of my best $20 purchases ever.
