  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
  • 4 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Use an air popper to pop the popcorn. Set the popcorn aside.
  • In a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. When butter starts to foam, swirl the skillet until butter turns golden brown and develops an amber color and gives off a nutty aroma, about 1-2 minutes. Set aside. 
  • In a small bowl, combined the sugar and cinnamon. Stir until combined.
  • Drizzle brown butter over the popcorn and season with cinnamon sugar mixture, tossing occasionally, until all of the popcorn is coated. Serve. 
  • Note-if you don't have an air popper you can pop the popcorn on the stove with oil.
