Loaded popcorn is an absolute MUST for movie night or binge watching your favorite TV show. I devoured this over season 4 of Selling Sunset and do not regret one calorie, although those girls are so stylish and gorgeous! But seriously if you like cinnamon, popcorn, and dark chocolate you have to try it.

Loaded Churro Popcorn Ingredients

  • Plain Popcorn
  • Unsalted Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Granular Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Melted Dark Chocolate
Simple ingredients for Loaded Churro Popcorn.

How To Make Churro Popcorn at Home

PLAIN POPCORN. Start off by popping your popcorn and throwing it into a large bowl.

BUTTER / BROWN SUGAR MIXTURE. Melt your butter and brown sugar in the microwave. Pour the mixture over your plain popcorn and stir until coated.

CINNAMON / SUGAR COATING. Whisk together the powdered sugar, granular sugar, and cinnamon. Toss the popcorn in your cinnamon sugar coating.

DARK CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE. Pour your Churro popcorn onto a prepared baking sheet and drizzle with melted dark chocolate.

DRY AND EAT. I like to let mine sit at room temperature for the chocolate to harden but you can always throw it in the refrigerator.

Tips for Even Better Churro Popcorn

  1. Use plain popcorn. I used microwave popcorn but you can also do air popped or bagged, pre-popped, plain popcorn.
  2. Make sure your brown sugar is fully dissolved in the butter mixture before pouring over your popcorn.
  3. Place your melted chocolate into a piping bag or plastic bag for a more controlled drizzle (that is what I did).
  4. Add other goodies like a caramel drizzle, roasted nuts, or even chocolate chips.
