Cinnamon Bear Popcorn

*Chirp* *Chirp*  Yep, I've been MIA around here for a long time.  I'm just popping in today to share my cousin Dahlene's yummy recipe (primarily so I can pin it to my own page).  I haven't made this dessert yet, but it's high on my To Do list!  Thanks for sharing Dahl!

Cinnamon Bear Popcorn

1 C. unpopped popcorn
2 C. cinnamon bears
1 C  butter
1/2 C corn syrup
1 1/2 C sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
4 C mini marshmallows
red food coloring
Pop the popcorn in an air popper.  Cut cinnamon bears into 3 pieces with kitchen shears or scissors and sprinkle half over popcorn in a large pan.  Put butter, corn syrup, and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium high heat.  Bring to a boil and turn to low to simmer for 5 minutes stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and add vanilla and marshmallows.  Stir until melted.  Add food coloring until you have a beautiful pink candy.  Pour candy over bear and popcorn mixture.  Stir a minute and then add the rest of the cinnamon bears.  Stir thoroughly until popcorn is well coated.  Pour out on to waxed paper to cool.  Serve with a smile!
