Pink Popcorn

Looking for a fun idea for a Valentine's Day treat? Try pink popcorn!


Here are the ingredients you'll need to whip up a batch of this perfectly pink snack:

12 cups of unsweetened popcorn
2 cups of mini marshmallows
1/2 cup of butter
1 package of strawberry gelatin


Cooking Directions:

1. Heat butter and marshmallows in a sauce pan until the marshmallows are almost melted.
2. As the butter and marshmallows are cooking, pop the 12 cups of popcorn (about 3 bags).
3. Pour the melted butter and marshmallows over the popcorn and stir.
4. Pour the packet of gelatin mix over the popcorn and stir.

Total cooking time: 10 minutes

Total cost of ingredients: Under $6 (I bought generic items)


Give it a try and let me know what you think!


Linking up with Shanna
