Mother Goose Popcorn

One of our favorite treats when our girls were little was popcorn.  It's inexpensive - it's versatile and it can be FUN!  We enjoyed popcorn in all forms; buttered, with cheese powder, caramel and THIS - Mother Goose Popcorn! 

It's a simple and easy to make treat.  I was thinking about Mother Goose popcorn last week, and finally this week I made some - with the intent that we would have it for snacking during General Conference.  Guess what?  There wasn't any left for snacking this weekend!  It was yummy.  Can't you just see the sweet goodness on those kernals? 

Mother Goose Popcorn
2 c. sugar                         3/4 c. milk
6 qts. popped popcorn     1/2 tsp. vanilla

Combine sugar and milk in a saucepan - cook on medium heat until it forms a soft ball.  Remove from heat and add vanilla and food coloring.  Pour over the popped corn and stir with a wooden spoon until the popcorn becomes dry and sugary.
