I remember when I was little kid, there was something about getting Churro's with school lunch. I always had my lunch packed for me, so these sugary fried treats were something I longed for and caused me to be envious of those lucky enough to eat school lunch. This week we are going to make my 10 year old self happy with, Churro Popcorn courtesy of homemadehooplah.com. As always, let us know if your tried this recipe and what you thought. And remember, no snack time is complete without the latest episode of Films in Black and White, available wherever you get your podcasts.

1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 Powdered Sugar
1/4 Granulated Sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Combine the powdered 1/2 powdered sugar, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1 1/2 teaspoon grand cinnamon in a separate bowl and set aside. Pop the popcorn kernels. Once kernels are popped, place popcorn in a large bowl.
In a small saucepan, combine the butter, light corn syrup, cinnamon, granulated sugar, and vanilla. Stir until the mixture is no longer grainy. Carefully(mixture is hot) pour the mixture over the popped popcorn. Make sure you stir well to coat.
Once the mixture has coated the popcorn, add the powdered sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon that you had set aside earlier, to the covered popcorn. Make sure to stir to coat evenly.
