Easy Family Recipes: Cinnamon Chocolate Popcorn

Cinnamon Chocolate PopcornHigh on my list this winter are sweet, yummy snacks that won't kill my waistline or bore the kids. I've been playing around with popcorn again ever since I saw Old Bay popcorn ready-made. One of the tricks to flavoring popcorn though, without going the whole buttery-caramel route, is making sure that whatever flavoring you add actually adheres to the popcorn. By using just a bit of cooking spray, you'll add enough moisture to help the flavor stick to the popcorn without making the popcorn mushy or seriously upping the calorie count. Whip up a batch today and watch the kids gobble it all!
