Churro Popcorn {Guest Post}

Merry Christmas Eve to all of you! I hope you have a fantastic day celebrating to your family!

While I’m still away in Chicago spending the holidays with family, I have another amazing blogger sharing today on LPH. Her name is Alicia from Last Night’s Dinner. Alicia and I met through a few other bloggy friends and, boy, am I ever glad we met! Not only does she have wonderful recipes, mad photography skills, but she is so incredibly sweet and kind! And I love bloggy stalking her! Alicia has a mouth-watering recipe to share with all of you today. Take it away, Alicia!

I’m so glad Talitha invited me to post today! My name is Alicia and I blog at Last Night’s Dinner. I’m an RN, an avid reader, a wannabe photographer, and I love to cook and bake. My husband and I have been married almost ten years, and have two little girls, ages five and one. My five year old is as picky as they come, and my toddler eats anything and everything. I love to try new recipes, and often just make things up as I go!

At our house, we’re pretty much crazy about anything churro flavored, and this popcorn is no exception! The sugar mixture combined with the buttery warm popcorn makes for a delicious snack, perfect for those cozy nights snuggled on the couch with a cup of cocoa. It would also be great for a neighbor gift (or even a stocking stuffer). Throw a little popcorn in a cellophane bag, add a cute tag and a little baker’s twine, and you’re good to go! To help you out, I’ve added some printable hand-lettered holiday gift tags (link below the image). Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

Churro Popcorn
Recipe type: Snack
  • 1-2 tbsp oil, {I like to use coconut oil, but canola works great too}
  • ⅓ cup popcorn kernels
  • 3-4 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Heat the oil in a medium sauce pan over medium high heat. Add 3-4 kernels of popcorn and heat until all the kernels have popped.
  2. Add remaining kernels, cover, remove from heat, and gently shake for about thirty seconds, so all the kernels are coated in oil.
  3. Return to heat, and keep the lid slightly ajar so that the steam can escape. Cook while frequently shaking the pan gently until most of the kernels are popped, and popping has slowed to about 1 kernel every few seconds.
  4. Remove from heat, and add popcorn to a large bowl. Add butter to the hot pan to melt. While the butter is melting, combine the sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  5. Pour melted butter over the popcorn, and toss to coat. Sprinkle desired amount of cinnamon sugar mixture over popcorn, and toss to coat. Enjoy!
