A fun, easy, and quick snack. The ingredients are things that I have on hand at the house so its so easy to make a batch. It reminds me of kettle korn but the colored sugar adds the right amount of sweet. Like the previous comment, I was a little hesitant about the cinnamon, but it is the perfect amount. This would be fun to vary the colors for different holidays and occasions.

I have made this snack several times. My daughters love it and it is fun to vary the sprinkles according to the nearest holiday. I am not usually a big fan of cinnamon but adding the 1/8 teaspoon is just the right amount and it smells great.
