So this delicious popcorn treat is the perfect color for Valentines Day …but flavored with Cinnamon Flavored Red Hots I’m not sure if the little ones will like it…but the grown ups sure do!! I took this to work and it disappeared before my eyes!! That is always a good sign!!
This is just a basic candy popcorn recipe but the Red Hots give it that something extra!!
Here is what you need:
- 1/2 cup butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup of Red Hots
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- approx. 4 quarts of popped popcorn ( Or 2 full size microwave bags)
Here is what you do:
Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan; Stir in the sugar, syrup and red hots. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until the red hots melt. Once melted continue boiling with out stirring for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda. Gradually pour over the popcorn and mix together. Place in a shallow pan/cookie sheet and bake at 200 degree for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool!
See that’s pretty simple…but super delicious!! It’s sure to be a hit!!
