This sweetened popcorn treat is light & crispy. I used a cup of sugar for my sweet coating, but you can bring it down to 3/4 cup to make it less sweet. Or use half granulated & half brown sugar if you like. So many options! #TexasHomesteader
Prepare your popped popcorn by first sorting out any unpopped kernels. Then divide popcorn on two large trays, which will make it easier to turn & coat your popcorn. (can use a large bowl instead if needed).
Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract until fully combined. Then quickly pour sugared coating over popcorn.
Quickly but gently stir to mix and coat each piece of popcorn.
OPTIONAL: If desired you can further dry the coating by spreading the coated popcorn on a baking tray and placing it into a cold oven.
Set temp to 350 degrees and set timer to 5 minutes. This gradual warming will help dry the sugared coating and keep the popcorn crispy.
After 5 minutes are up, turn oven off and allow to stay in warmed oven for additional 5 minutes.
Remove from oven, stir and enjoy!
