Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white corn syrup
  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 drop red food coloring
  • 1 drop green food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 8 quarts popped popcorn

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine corn syrup, margarine and salt.
  • Heat to 242 to 248 degrees F, or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a firm but pliable ball.
  • Remove from heat, divide into to 2 pans and stir in food coloring, one red & one green.
  • Add equal amounts of cinnamon oil and baking soda to each.
  • Pour over popcorn; 4 quarts, red & 4 quarts green, toss to coat.
  • Place popcorn on baking sheet and into preheated oven.
  • Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  • Consider using more sugar or salt depending on desired flavor.
  • I also add about 4 more quarts of the plain popcorn, white to add more color.
  • Can made 1/2 of the coating without coloring or just add plain after the colored popcorn has cooked.

Notes

This is colorful popcorn that is sweet. Great for the family get togethers.
