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!

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.

Hello, It looks like the cupcake candy skulls are no longer available. Any ideas for a backup?


Saturday 25th of August 2018

Oh no! That's a bummer. There are different options. There are candy skulls from Amazon - You can go for regular skulls - or colored ones - Hopefully as the holiday gets closer, they'll have more options, too!
