Pink Popcorn

This was a staple of my childhood.  Anytime my mom needed to take something to school for one of our class parties she would make this and color it for the occasion, green for St. Patricks day, Red and Green for Christmas, but we always called it Pink Popcorn because if there wasn't a special occasion we always made it pink.  Now a days when mom makes it with the grandkids it's usually blue or green, but they all know what it is and we all love it!  It's something that reminds me of my childhood and my mother.  

1/4 C. Margarine

2 C. Sugar

1/2 C. Water

1 tsp. Salt

Boil ingredients together for 4 minutes stirring constantly, then add 1 tsp Vanilla and any food coloring of your choice. Remove from heat and pour over 2-3 batches of air popped popcorn, stir until completely coated.  Spread popcorn out on counter top to cool completely.

Do you have to use margerine in this recipe? Or can you replace the margerine with butter?

Butter works just a good as margarine. My mom's recipe from back in the day just read's Margarine.
