"I drizzle white chocolate over the popcorn and add nuts, fruit, etc. for the holidays. This makes a great gift for teachers! The popcorn stays crisp and has just the right amount of cinnamon flavor."

"Quick and Easy to Make. Next time I will try to cut down on the sugar to make it a little more healthier."

"I tried the recipe as written. It did shrink about a third, but the taste was well worth it. Then I tried it again with half the sugar (1/4 cup) and upped the cinnamon (1 and 1/2 teaspoon). I thought it turned out just fine. So if you want to reduce the sugar to between 1/4 and 1/2 cup, you can--depending upon how much sweetness you want."

"I tried this recipe, but will not use again. Once the popcorn was baked it (dissolved) into only 2 cups of popcorn."
