Red Hot Valentine Popcorn

What you need: 

1 (9-ounce) bag Red Hots or Cinnamon Imperials candy
1/2 cup vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)
1/4 cup high fructose corn syrup (I use Karo)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 bags microwave popcorn, popped (8 cups)

What you do: 

1. Syrup: In a microwave-safe bowl, combine candy, margarine, and corn syrup; heat on high for 4 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Add vanilla and baking soda; stir until light and foamy.
2. Place popcorn in brown paper bag and drizzle with syrup. Microwave at 1 minute intervals until corn is evenly coated, shaking after each minute.
3. Cool on cookie sheet.

Karo Syrup is not high fructose corn syrup - it is merely corn syrup, and there is a huge difference. HFCS is only available commercially. And really, that's fine, why would you want to use HFCS anyway?
