Makes a great hostess gift! In a jar tied with a pretty ribbon, or a festive baggie with a topper -spice up any season or holiday, just change the color and flavor of the Jelly Belly beans!

1 Tbs. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups prepared air-popped popcorn (microwave variety works great)

non stick cooking spray

In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. In large bowl, combine popcorn, cereal, and cranberries. Spray popcorn mixture lightly for 4-5 seconds with non-stick cooking spray. Quickly toss with sugar mixture.
