Chocolate Cinnamon Popcorn

Looking for a fun, healthy snack to make with the kids? Everyone loves popcorn! Why not try this easy treat that adds a kiss of sweetness without any unhealthy preservatives.

You can find popcorn kernels in the farmers’ market or regular grocery store. They’re far cheaper than the microwavable kind, and without all the added fats and salts, are a much healthier option.

If you have an air popper, this is the best way to pop corn. Kids can actually watch each kernel burst from its brown skin and shoot into a bowl, transformed into a fluffy white piece of popcorn. Add a light dusting of chocolate, cinnamon and sugar, and your child will eagerly gobble up this snack time and again.

Chocolate Cinnamon Popcorn


  • 1/2 cup popcorn seeds, popped
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, melted


Place the popped popcorn in a very large bowl and set aside.

In a small bowl, stir together the sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon and salt until combined.

Drizzle the melted butter over the popped popcorn. Next, sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sugar cocoa mixture over the buttered popcorn. Toss to coat.

Serve immediately. You will have extra sugar cocoa mixture left over. Keep it on hand in a sealed container to make this easy snack. It will keep for several weeks.

Yield: 1 giant bowl of popcorn.
