I have one last festive recipe for your Fourth of July or Canada Day festivities (Happy Cananda Day today!!)…Red, White and Blue Candied Popcorn (or Red and White for you Canadians)! Super easy and delicious and a fun way to celebrate your Nation.
Here is the recipe from Cooks.com.
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
6 cup popcorn (popped)
Few drops of food coloring (optional)
Boil sugar, salt and water to 235 degrees (soft ball stage). Remove from heat.
Add vanilla. Pour over popped popcorn and stir until glaze sugars.
Pour candy over popcorn that has been placed in a 9 x 13 baking dish. Mix the candy over the popcorn so that it is evenly spread out. Let cool and serve.
I made two batches so that I could share it with a lot of my friends and family. One batch red and one batch blue. Then I just intermixed some regular popcorn pieces into the red and blue mixture to make it red, white and blue.
Package it up cute or serve it in a big bowl for everyone to share.
Hope you have some fun holiday plans! We are spending our holiday with my husband’s family! We have a lot of fun things scheduled. Hope all of you stay safe and have a great holiday weekend!
