How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Place popcorn in a shallow pan and place in oven to keep warm.
  • In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter and add sugar, water and salt; stir until sugar is dissolved.
  • Boil about 20 minutes, until syrup just begins to color (about 275 degrees on a candy thermometer; hardball stage).
  • Watch syrup carefully once it reaches 250 degrees; it will darken quickly if it gets too hot.
  • To test: Syrup should form a firm ball when dropped into cold water.
  • Add vanilla and food coloring.
  • Stir well.
  • Pour in a stream over warm popcorn and quickly stir to coat each piece.
  • Pour popcorn onto a sheet of baking parchment paper and separate each kernel. Be careful; syrup will be hot.
  • Coating will harden as popcorn cools.
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • ---------If you want flavored popcorn, try searching for "Jello Flavored Popcorn Recipe" on the internet. Happy Halloween!

    Oh this looks so yummy! I think it would be fun to do red, white, and blue for the forth of July, or something like that. I am going to give this a go for sure.
