Pop your popcorn ahead of time. I'm old school and do it in a large stock pot on the stove.
In a large saucepan combine all the other ingredients except the food colouring. Cook over medium heat until well combined and a bit bubbly. Remove from heat. Add the food colouring and whisk until well combined.
Allow to cool a little bit. Pouring piping hot liquid over popcorn causes it to shrink so always allow some cool down time.
Pour over popcorn and mix thoroughly until evenly coated.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees, low is good, we're not cooking the popcorn, we're drying it out, even 200 degrees would work.
Pour the popcorn on the parchment lined cookie sheet.
Place in oven for 30 to 60 minutes. You need to be turning it over every 15 minutes or so.
Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Serve with a big old oops I did it again smile!
