Make some strawberry candy popcorn
Another yummy treat you can give someone on Valentines Day. This is pretty easy to make.
Just take 4 quarts of popcorn (I used microwave), put on a pan in oven at 200F to keep warm.
Now make your candy. Mix the following ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil stirring constantly.
1 1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C light corn syrup
2 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
Cook to 250F without stirring. Remove from heat. After boiling action ceases, add 1tsp strawberry flavoring and color. Add 1 tsp baking soda and stir in quickly, but thoroughly. Pour at once while foamy over popcorn and stir gently to coat. Spread onto cookie sheet til completely cooled. Break into bite sized pieces.
