  1. 10 cups popped corn
  2. 1 cup granulated white sugar
  3. 1/3 cup corn syrup
  4. 1-½ tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
  5. 1/8 teaspoon fine salt
  6. ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  7. 1 teaspoon candy flavoring
  8. few drops liquid food color
  9. ½ teaspoon baking soda
  1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Spread popped corn into lined cookie sheet and keep warm in the oven.
  2. Combine together sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt and cream of tartar in a saucepan over medium heat. Allow to boil while stirring. Once the mixture begins to boil, allow to continue booking until it reaches 250°F (as it registers on a candy thermometer), without stirring.
  3. Remove pan from heat. Set aside for 1 minute until boiling subsides. Immediately stir in candy flavor. Add a few drops of food color until desired tint is achieved. Stir to mix until color is even.
  4. Pour in baking soda and stir thoroughly. Pour over popped corn and toss until well-coated. Allow to cool coated popcorn in pan(s). Break any clumps once candy is just hot enough to handle. Store in airtight containers to keep crispy.
  1. If desired, use fruit-based flavoring.
  2. For mint-flavor, adding freshly chopped mint leaves to the candy mixture is also recommended.
