When the popcorn is ready and looks like this take it out the oven and keep stirring the mixture every few minutes. As the mixture cools, the popcorn will get nice and crispy. Baking it will dry out the cinnamon sugar syrup mixture so your popcorn won’t be sticky.

    This worked out so well! Delicious. I’ve never oven dried popcorn after making before. Nice touch. I did ht even part in 2 batches, and put shredded coconut on the 2nd tray.

    This was SO yummy and easy. However, Ive never done this before and just followed it directly but you need to wait until the sugar syrup is cooled before pouring it on the popcorn or else it just shrivles all up and disappears. I ended up kinda messing up the first batch so I made another and combined them and it was ok. I wonder how well it keeps to make ahead for a gift? If its in an airtight container, how long would it keep fresh and crispy?

      I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the popcorn 🙂
      Cooling down the syrup works as well indeed.
      I have kept the popcorn in an airtight container for up to 4 days, I never kept it longer (it was all eaten :D) so I don’t know how long it can be kept exactly. You can try a little test batch and see how long it’ll keep.

    If you substitute sugar for demarara or brown sugar and microwave sauce for minute and a half becomes like a caramel sauce. Also substituted butter for coconut oil. Divine!!!

    How much unpopped popcorn kernels should I measure out to get the 2 quarts popped?

      Hi Stacy, I’m not exactly sure, but I would start with 2-3 tablespoons unpopped. That will probably be enough. You can always pop more if needed.

    This is yummy but there doesn’t seem to be enough “sauce” for 16 cups of popped corn (4 qts). Is there an error in the recipe?

      Hi Robin, you’re right, even though I’ve made the recipe with 4 quarts before I prefer using less popcorn. The 4 is a typo, I’ve corrected the recipe. Thanks for letting me know.

    How long does this stay fresh? I’m thinking about making a lot for a party and want to know how far in advance it can be made. Its summer here and humid

      Hi Ann,

      I’ve only ever made the popcorn on the day that it’ll be eaten so I can’t say for sure. However, I would think that you could make it a day in advance as well. Maybe you can make a small batch first and see how long it’ll keep. I would put the popcorn in an airtight container if I were to make it in advance.
