You will need:
■ 4 quarts popped corn
■ 1 ½ cups sugar
■ ½ cup light corn syrup
■ 2 Tablespoon Butter
■ ½ teaspoon salt
■ ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
■ ¼ teaspoon vanilla
■ 1 teaspoon baking soda
■ Pink food coloring (about 1/8 teaspoon)
- In heavy saucepan on medium heat melt butter then add sugar, corn syrup, cream of tartar and salt. Increase temperature to medium high and bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly to dissolve sugar.
- Once mixture boils, add in food coloring and stop stirring. Boil for 5 minutes (Do not stir). Mixture should be about 250-260 degrees. Remove from heat and carefully stir in vanilla and baking soda.
- Working quickly and while mixture is foamy, pour mixture over popped corn and gently stir to coat popcorn.
- Place popcorn into a large roaster or rimmed baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or sprayed with cooking spray) and bake at 200° F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
