I have made this for years. If you can find the cinnamon imperials by Brach they melt much easier and coat the popcorn better. I usually stock up on them when I find them.

I made this to give away at work for Christmas gifts. It turned out really nice. What a nice inexpensive gift. I did not have corn syrup so I used honey instead. It did take a little long to bake. What a beautiful presentation.

The only bad thing about this snack is you can't stop eating until it's gone! My youngest loves to receive a batch in her college care packages.
