This could be a fun gift (in a pretty jar) for Valentine’s Day! Or just an easy and simple snack to impress your family! You do need a stovetop popcorn maker for this, although it can probably be done in a regular pot.


Pink Popcorn

2 Tbsp oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/3 cup sugar
Approx 10 drops red food colouring
Salt (optional)

Heat oil in stovetop popper. Add kernels. Then add sugar and food colouring. Stir well, continue stirring until popcorn is popped. Pour popcorn into a large bowl, and sprinkle with salt if desired.


We attempted making some green popcorn at Christmas time, but I think I’ll stick with pink!!
