Candied popcorn! Putting dentists’ kids through college since whenever it was invented.
- 20 cups popped popcorn
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 tbsp butter
- 1⁄4 cup water
Grease a large roasting pan, then fill with popcorn.
In a saucepan, sugar, butter and water, then boil for 3 minutes.
Let cool to lukewarm, pour over popcorn and toss to coat. Scoop onto parchment paper and let cool completely before breaking apart.
Add 1–2 drops red food coloring to the syrup to make old-fashioned pink popcorn, or color it to match the holiday or occasion you’re making it for.
