Why I Love This Recipe

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


Ingredients You'll Need

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.


Questions, Comments & Reviews


I tried to make this but I think there is an ingredient left out of the list of ingredients and I think it is sugar ???? It tastes way to buttery and not sweet at all. The recipe says "Consider using more sugar or salt depending on desired flavor. " But there is not a step that says to add sugar anywhere.

sounds like fun my kids will love this
