Red Hot Popcorn
We do a lot of snacking in my house.
In fact, the Tall Boy and I have learned not to call any meal “breakfast,” “lunch” or “dinner,” but rather a “snack.” Doodle is all about snacking, and not so much into eating actual meals.
I, however, am into snacking and eating actual meals.
I’m also not into exercising, but rather finding ways to avoid it. Ugh, don’t mention anything to the Tall Boy about the elliptical machine collecting dust under the stairs or the multiple games I insisted we buy for the Wii so exercising would seem like “fun.” ‘Cause then he’ll make fun of me and say he told me so…and I’m the only one who gets to say that in this house (kidding. But not really).
But also, I don’t really consider anything that makes me sweat “fun.” I’ve tried to be all sporty and exercise-y, but it just isn’t me.
So instead, I often look for ways to lighten up sweets so I don’t feel guilty about my non-sportiness.
This popcorn is super easy, and because I used a bag of JiffyPop popcorn that is only one Weight-Watchers point per serving, it’s also fairly guilt-free!
- 1 bag microwave popcorn (or approximately 4 cups popped popcorn)
- ½ cup red hots
- ¼ cup water
- Spread popped popcorn on a parchement-lined cookie sheet.
- In a small saucepan, heat the candies and the water over medium high heat. Stir occasionally, until candies begin to melt. Remove from heat, and continue stirring until the mixture is smooth.
- Using a spoon, drizzle the candy mixture over cooled popcorn. Allow to set on your prepared cookie sheet until the candy mixture hardens.

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking. In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
