Cupid Corn (and gift tag)

Pin It

Here is a really sweet treat to share with your loved ones.  We all know that I love my sweets and this one is high up on the list of favorites.  It is so simple, has so few ingredients and yet so addictive.  I repeat….this is ADDICTIVE stuff.  So, it is perfectly sweet to share with all those around you.  It makes a great little Valentine treat.

Although it is called Cupid Corn, you can make this all the time.  It is fun to throw in different candies or even color the popcorn.  To color, add a few drops of food coloring with the vanilla.  My youngest actually calls this blue popcorn every time we make it.  I made it blue once for a baby shower and she always remembers that even though I have never made it blue since.  {It was over a year ago.   So funny what kids remember and hold on to.}

Be sure to try this one and make someone’s day a little sweeter.  Everyone enjoys a good treat now and then.

Cupid Corn


8 cups popped popcorn (no salt or butter)
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 light corn syrup
1 cup butter
1 tsp. vanilla
m&ms {or other small candy} optional


Place popcorn in a large, heat-proof bowl.

Combine syrup, butter and sugar in a large saucepan.  Bring to a boil over high heat.  Boil to soft ball stage. {The syrup mixture should be at a rapid boil for a couple of minutes and should begin to become slightly foamy.  To test place a small amount of syrup in a cup of very cold water.  If the syrup forms a soft ball in the water but flattens when removed, it is at the soft ball stage.}

Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.  Pour over popcorn and stir to coat.  Once slightly cooled you can add in m&ms if you like.  Add as many or as few as you like.

This popcorn is perfect to share with someone you love.  The gift tags below will let them know how much you care.
