I just realized Valentine's Day is Thursday. And, Jacob just asked if we were doing anything special. I replied, 'probably not'. The reason: it's a week night and I'm old so I like to be in bed before the sports portion of the news starts. Also, every restaurant will be packed and therefore not very enjoyable.
My idea of a nice Valentine's Day is to order dinner in, cuddle up with Jakers and watch a movie. So that's our plan! What about you? This RED HOT Cinnamon Popcorn will make a perfect snack for our movie!
RED HOT Cinnamon Popcorn
5 cups popped popcorn
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup Red Hots
Pop popcorn and spread onto 1 or 2 wax paper lined cookie sheets. Remove any un-popped pieces. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
In a sauce pan, combine water and Red Hots and cook until Red Hots are fully dissolved. Pour liquid over the popped popcorn and toss to coat.
Place cookie sheet(s) in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, removing from the oven and tossing after 10 minutes, until popcorn starts to crisp up and is not wet.
Allow popcorn to cool completely Store in an airtight container.
