Cinnamon Bear Popcorn

Every year I try to find a little something for the daycare kids for Christmas that is fun and different, yet won't break my pocketbook! This year I found this fun recipe to try out... It was so good I almost didn't want to give it up to them! :)

Cinnamon Bear Popcorn
(recipe found at

24 cups popped popcorn (1 cup unpopped)
1 16 ounce bag cinnamon bears
1 cup butter
1/2 cup corn syrup
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups mini marshmallows
red food coloring

Pop up popcorn. Sprinkle it with just a bit of salt and set aside. Snip cinnamon bears up with a pair of kitchen scissors. In a medium sized sauce pan combine the butter, corn syrup and sugar. Heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes. Remove it from the heat and add vanilla, marshmallows and red food coloring. Mix it all around to get everything melted and combined. Stir in the bears. Add the mixture to popped popcorn. Stir it all around until well combined.
