For Valentine’s Week I’ve got yet another quick and easy Sweet Treat for you!
Mother Goose Popcorn is a sweet popcorn. I have no idea why it is called Mother Goose Popcorn but I got this recipe from my husband’s Aunt Elaine.
You can make it whatever color you want depending on the holiday and the season – I chose pink for Valentine’s Day of course. I thought a batch of red and a batch of green mixed together after drying would be fun for Christmas too and how about red, white and blue for the 4th of July! Just imagine the possibilities!!
The syrup has two teaspoons of vanilla in it which gives it a wonderful flavor. I love vanilla and next time I think I will add another teaspoon!
I air-popped the popcorn. The syrup mixes up quick and fast – just pour it over the popcorn and mix and then let air dry on a cookie sheet. It dries very quickly.
I used some cute little heart covered cellophane bags and tied them up with red ribbon.
