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.

For super fun savory popcorns you have to try these popcorn for dinner recipes. Or try making your own homemade kettle corn.

  • 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.

4 Recipe Tips You Need To Know:

  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.

    This is the ultimate snack. We had so much fun making it but, obviously, more fun eating it. I wanted to leave off the chocolate drizzle but so glad I let my son talk me into adding it. It was the perfect touch!! So good!
