“Oops I did it again…” Oh! Who has Brittany Spears stuck in their head now?! I’m feeling a major flash back to the early 2000’s, baby! Brittany Spears was catchy, and she did have great abs for a bit there, but I have to admit, I never really cared that much. I mean, I totally sang along if her songs came on, but I never bought her cd’s or went to a concert. But every now and again something happens and I find myself doing a little #tbt and singing, “Ooops I did it again.” It’s ridiculous, I know, but so is this churro popcorn, ridiculously good that is.

Oh my gosh, and seriously what is my deal today? Now I’m all, “Ridiculously good looking” and suddenly I’m in college again! Man, life was so darn easy back then. I think about my own kids right now and A. they don’t have a clue how good they have it, and B. I feel this huge urgency to bust out awesome traditions and experiences so they will have fond memories of their childhood and be firmly connected to their family no matter what.

I made churro pretzels last year that have been going crazy this holiday season so when we invited a bunch of kids over for a little dance party and goodies after school I decided to make it especially fun for the kiddos with some healthy and not so healthy snacks.

The churro popcorn was born and I may even like it better than the pretzels! You don’t need Brittany in an all denim outfit or Ben Stiller talking about the “black lung, Pop” to create good memories, you just need popcorn. Er, I mean love. Yeah, love is way more important than good food, right?

What is Churro?

Churros are simply a strip of fried dough that is dipped in cinnamon and sugar.

 

Is Popcorn Nutritious?

Air-popped and eaten plain, popcorn is a healthy whole grain food that is low in calories and high in fiber.

Oil-popped popcorn is not so healthy.

Oil and flavoring adds a lot of fat and calories to what could have been a nutritious snack.

 

Can Popcorn Kernels Go Bad?

Popcorn can go “bad” if not stored properly.

Un-popped Kernels should be stored in an airtight container.

Popcorn kernels keep indefinitely.

Microwave popcorn has a much shorter shelf life due to the oils and additives in the popcorn bag.

Microwave popcorn can be kept for up to 8 months.

  1. Delicious! I haven’t been able to find the cinnamon chips for a while so I replaced with White Chocolate chips and added a dash or two of ground cinnamon to that. 
    Also, I planned to half the recipe but forgot to half the actual popc. Glad it worked out that way. We liked it perfectly and commented on how overly sweet any more topping would have been. Great creation! Thanks! 

    • Yeah! That sounds delicious! Those cinnamon chips are hard to find. They usually show up around this time off year and I load up on several bags when I find them! So happy you enjoyed it!

  4. Hi!

    What an amazing popcorn!
    I couldn’t find those cinnamon flakes so instead I took sugar, powdered sugar and “grounded” cinnamon instead.
    It worked well – well enough!
    Thanks

  6. Looks amazing, but if I can’t find cinnamon chips (I live in South Africa and have never seen any), what could I use as a substitute? Thank you!

    • Hi Bianca,
      So cool that you are in South Africa, but what a bummer they aren’t sold there. Unfortunately there isn’t really a substitute. You could make it with white white chocolate chips and add a little cinnamon, but I have not tried this so I’m not sure how well it will blend.

  7. lol! I was obsessed with Britney from like 2nd-7th grades (then I decided she was trashy-which she was).

    This churro popcorn looks SO tasty-def. even better than the pretzels!

  8. I LOVE churros so much!!! I would absolutely die over this popcorn – yum!

  9. I am dying over here, this looks over the top delicious!!!

  10. What! Is this a real thing? Yum!

  11. What a great idea! A little bit of cinnamon sugar makes everything better 🙂
