Cinnamon Toast Crunch Popcorn
Cinnamon Toast Crunch popcorn is pretty much the best combination of snack and breakfast foods we could ever think of. Make it for a party, or because it’s Monday.
It’s about time I combine two of my favorite things.
Sleeping and eating.
Oh wait, that won’t work.
CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH and POPCORN.
Yeahhhh, that’s what I’m talking about.
The best cereal on earth (that I never, ever, ever keep in my house!) and the greatest snack in the whole wide world. Match made in heaven, right? The only question is, how and why have I not ventured into this territory before?
Side note: If you couldn’t read between the lines, I don’t keep it in the house because I can’t keep my hands off of it. I have zero self-control. My mother-in-law buys it for me when we spend a week with them in the summers. It’s the one time a year I indulge.
As I’ve done with previous popcorn creations, I made sure the Cinnamon Toast Crunch love was present in every single bite of this addictive snack. I achieved this by crushing up some of the cereal and leaving some of it whole. That way the flavor is spread throughout the entire batch of popcorn (adhered by creamy white chocolate), but you still get to see and taste the whole cereal pieces too.
I probably sound like a broken record but this is important: You must pick out the unpopped kernels before putting on the white chocolate. It only takes a minute or two and it will save you hours of dental work.
Here’s how I do it:
- Pop the corn using an air popper. Preheat it for a few minutes to minimize the number of un-popped kernels.
- Give the bowl a little shakey-shake.
- Pull the popped corn out of the bowl and put it on a rimmed baking sheet. The un-popped corn falls to the bottom when you shake it, so this is really quite easy.
- Toss out all the half-popped and un-popped kernels.
- Put the popped corn back into the bowl and proceed with the recipe!
