Fall Snack Mix

The Fall and Christmas season always makes me think of snack mixes.  Maybe it's the return of football and hockey seasons and having a fun snack on hand to enjoy the games with.  The only question was whether to make it a savory or a sweet mix.  This time, I went with the sweet option with a hint of cinnamon.  The blue tortilla chips were a colorful addition.  You can sub in regular ones but with Halloween fast approaching, I liked the color.

1/4 cup popcorn, measurement is unpopped

In a small pan, melt 1 stick of butter.  When melted, add 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon.  Stir and pour over the popcorn mixture.  Bake for 1 hour at 250°, stirring every 15 minutes.  Allow to cool and pour into a serving container.
