Popcorn bars are a fun new trend at wedding receptions. If you are thinking of having one, why not add old-fashioned pink popcorn to the mix? Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup popcorn kernels, popped
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup half and half
  • 1 Tbsp light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6 drops red food coloring (or any other color you’d like)

Pour popped popcorn into two very large mixing bowls, set aside.

In a large saucepan whisk together sugar, half and half, corn syrup and salt. Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly until sugar has dissolved. Heat mixture to 232 degrees, stirring occasionally.

Gently stir popcorn until mixture is evenly coated and coating begins to dry (you’ll notice the popcorn kernels separating).
