Candied Popcorn

1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
3/8 cup white corn syrup
1 tbls butter

1/2 tsp candy flavor or extract
2 drops food coloring

1/2 cup popcorn, popped

In a heavy saucepan, heat first four ingredients. Cook to 280 degrees on candy thermometer. Remove from heat and quickly stir in extract and coloring. Add imediately to popcorn and toss.

I use cooking spray in the popcorn bowl. And I spray two big spoons to help mix the candy onto the popcorn quickly.

Ideas for flavors..... peppermint, maple, cinnamon, pineapple, root beer, vanilla

Good luck and happy poppin'!!
