Red Hot Popcorn

I have long commissioned my mother-in-law to make her delicious Red Hot Popcorn for various events I have coordinated. I like the bright red coloring, and love the yummy cinnamon flavor!

This past weekend I needed an extra large batch to use as favors at a Fireman Baby Shower and decided to try it myself. The recipe was a little more tedious than I am usually willing to try, but with the help of my husband, we nailed it! 

We served this yummy Red Hot Popcorn as the favor at a friend's Fireman Baby Shower. Here it is, packaged and ready to be enjoyed by the baby shower guests!
