I have been baking up a storm this week making neighbor gifts. Usually I give everyone the same thing, but I’m changing it up this year. I had a lot of recipes I wanted to try, so I used my neighbors as guinea pigs. (Shh, don’t tell.) Every day I just whipped up a batch of something and made a few deliveries. So much more fun and less stress, that I think I may try it again next year!

Cinnamon Roll Caramel Corn is crunchy, sweet, and highly addicting. A perfect popcorn recipe for snacking or gift giving!

This first recipe is one that Sara, the co-author of one of my favorite recipe blogs, Our Best Bites, made on Studio 5 way back in September. I am kicking myself for waiting so long to try it. Oh.My.Goodness. It is delicious! Just like that wonderful gourmet popcorn that you have to pay an arm and a leg for. Well, you can hold onto your limbs, because now you can make gourmet cinnamon roll caramel corn right at home.

Whip up a batch of this Cinnamon Roll Caramel Corn for movie night, or gift giving. It's crunchy, sweet, cinnamony, and highly addictive. A perfect holiday caramel corn recipe!

This is the first time I’ve made a non- gooey caramel corn, and I’m hooked. It’s so easy. You make the cinnamon caramel sauce in the microwave, then stir it over the popcorn and pecans. (Use this trick for removing popcorn kernels.) Then you place it in the oven and bake it till it’s nice and crunchy. (I line my cookie sheets with silpat liners, and cleanup is a breeze.) Top it off with some melted white chocolate, and you have an irresistible snack!

Cinnamon Roll Caramel Popcorn - popcorn covered in cinnamon caramel sauce, then drizzled with white chocolate. A festive caramel popcorn recipe that everyone loves!

If you have any last minute neighbor or friend gifts, this would be perfect. Toss some in a bag,  tie it up with a cute ribbon, add a gift tag and you’re good to go. Or you could just keep it all for yourself. I won’t tell anyone. 🙂
