Cinnamon Bun Popcorn Recipe

If you’re someone who enjoys an ooey gooey cinnamon bun every once in a while (Me!), you’re going to love this Cinnabon popcorn recipe. It’s packed with all the delicious flavors of a regular cinnamon bun, except it’s bite-sized.

On top of that, this recipe is pretty easy and quick to put together. You can even use a plain variety of microwave popcorn to make it quicker.

I’ll be honest, when I first tried this recipe, I wasn’t quite sure if I’d like it or not. I’ve tried other popcorn variations before, but this one seemed like it was going to be too sweet! After trying it though, I really enjoyed it. It’s not too sweet, it’s just right.

How to Make It

Like I said above, this recipe is pretty easy. It will take around 20 minutes or so to get everything prepared though so make sure you have enough time.

To make it, just microwave up the cinnamon caramel mixture, pour it over the popcorn and stir to coat. Then bake it and drizzle almond bark over it all. Yum!

Final Thoughts

This cinnamon roll popcorn is a fantastic holiday treat to have around for the family or to take to the neighbors and friends. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like it! Package it up in a cute tin or bag and it makes a great little gift!

Once you try this recipe yourself, let me know what you think! I find it to be quite an addicting treat and I’m kind of getting hungry just thinking about it. Maybe I’ll cook up a batch later!
