Valentine's Day | Pink Party Popcorn Mix






 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
Directions:
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. 


Ever After,
Jamie
