Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn, the perfect movie night snack, after-school snack or anytime snack. You'll fall in love with this popcorn tossed with ghee and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Once you reach in, you won't be able to stop going back!
In a small bowl, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon and salt until completely mixed together.
Add 3 tablespoons of the ghee to a large pot set on medium heat.
To test if the ghee is hot enough, place two popcorn kernels into the hot ghee, cover with lid and wait for them to pop. Once they have popped, remove them with a spoon and throw away.
Add the 3/4 cup of popcorn kernels to the pot in as even a layer as possible and cover. Remove the pot from the heat to a count of 25 seconds. This will bring all kernels to an even temperature. Return pot to heat and once kernels begins to pop, shake the pot back and forth just above the burner every 20-30 seconds. Repeat process until popping starts to slow and time increases between popping. Pour popcorn into a large bowl.
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture all over the popcorn, but do not mix yet.
In a microwavable bowl, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons of ghee for 30 seconds. Stir, and then microwave for an additional 10 seconds if needed. Add vanilla, and mix until completely combined. Pour all over the popcorn. Gently mix everything together using two large serving spoons until the popcorn is well coated.
Store in an airtight container for up to three days.
