You may be surprised that, unlike traditional popcorn ball recipes, Red Hot Poppers are not only much more colorful in the patriotic colors of red, white, and blue, they're loaded with a pop of red, sweet and slightly spicy flavor. All you need is some freshly popped popcorn, butter or margarine, mini marshmallows, red hot cinnamon candies, red and blue star sprinkles, and for the firecracker "fuse," some red licorice shoestring candy
