Candied Popcorn

I made red, yellow, blue and green popcorn for the Library story time today. We were reading books about those four colors. This recipe is from my dear friend, Utahna Richins.

2 c. sugar
1/4 t. salt
1 T. white karo
2/3 c. milk
Cook to 230° or just under a soft ball stage. Add:
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. food coloring
Mix well and pour over 6 quarts of popped popcorn. Stir until well coated. Spread popcorn on waxed paper, separate and let dry.

I am so excited about this recipe. I'm always looking for Christmas stocking stuffers and I can see cute little cello bags of this red and green popcorn in the grandkids stockings this year instead of candy!! Thank you so much.

You know...I am trying so hard not to make this...but this is like the third time I've come here and drooled over this recipe. Think I might have to succumb to temptation
