The base starts with a Churro Popcorn, yum! Being a big Disney fan, this helps me get my churro fix. Then add in your favorite extras to make a Coco Party mix! The candy skulls are so cute, and they can be used for a Coco party, Halloween popcorn recipes, cupcakes, Día de Los Muertos recipes, or classroom parties.

Coco Churro Popcorn Recipe
Cinnamon Coated Popcorn
1 bag Kettle popcorn (I like Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP for a lighter popcorn)
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup multi colored M&Ms
1/2 cup chocolate coated sunflower seeds
1 cup of chocolate covered pretzels
1 container of cupcake candy skulls
Churro Sugar Coating
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 and 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Coco Popcorn Directions:
In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the churro sugar coating and set aside.
Next, pour popcorn in a large baking pan covered with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
Add granulated sugar, cinnamon, light corn syrup, and vanilla.
Whisk the butter mix constantly, until mixture is smooth about 2 to 4 minutes.
Begin to slowly drizzle cinnamon butter coating over popcorn.
Use a spatula to toss the popcorn to evenly coat.
Sprinkle the popcorn with the churro sugar coating, then toss to coat.
Add all of the other ingredients to the popcorn and toss to mix.
*Note: The availability of the candy sugar skulls goes in and out, so if they are out of stock, do a quick google search for what you can find in your area and check party stores.
