Check out this amazing and delish Valentine’s Day popcorn recipe by Jamie Taylor from Jamie Ever After!
I absolutely love popcorn, especially when it’s mixed with other goodies. This adorable popcorn mix is not only perfect for a Valentine’s day treat, but great for girly functions such as baby showers, bachelorette parties, and birthdays. I found some recipes on Pinterest and did my own variation based on ingredients I had. I also thought it might be cute to package in little treat bags and hand out as Valentines. You can also switch up the colors for other themes. To go over-the-top pink, I enjoyed with some old-fashioned strawberry milk.
What You’ll Need:
- A package of your favorite popcorn (or you can pop your own). I love Boom Chicka Pop.
- 5-6 drops red food coloring (or color of choice)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup Candy- I used Pink candy corn and M + Ms
Heat oven to 200 degrees. Boil the sugar, butter, water and food coloring for about 4 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes. Pour popcorn onto a cookie sheet and then evenly pour the sugar mix over the popcorn and toss. Let the popcorn bake for 7-10 minutes. After popcorn cools, mix in the candy and serve.
