Original recipe makes 6 quarts popcorn
6 quarts popped popcorn
2 cups white sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup butter
2 (.13 ounce) envelopes unsweetened soft drink mix, any flavor (such as KOOL-AID®)
1 teaspoon baking soda
- Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Grease a large baking sheet. Place popped popcorn in a large bowl.
- Combine sugar, corn syrup, and butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil until sugar dissolves, about 3 minutes.
- Combine drink mix and baking soda in a large bowl; pour sugar mixture into drink mixture, stirring carefully. Sugar mixture will bubble. Pour mixture over popcorn; toss to evenly coat. Transfer coated popcorn to baking sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 10 minutes, until coating has hardened, about 30 minutes. Cool and break popcorn into pieces.
