My Little Son calls it "Painted Popcorn"
These are the ingredients you need (exact amounts below):
Here's the recipe:
2 cups popcorn kernels (un-poppped)
1 1/2 cups white sugar
4 TB water
1 TB butter
Pop your popcorn (air popped works best). This time I put my own kernels in the paper bag in the microwave (1/2 cup at a time). Roll the bag top. Pop for about 2 minutes (listen to when it slows down).
Put all ingredients in sauce pan (minus the popcorn). Bring everything to boil, stirring constantly.
As soon as it boils, pour it immediately over your popcorn and stir it around until all the popcorn is covered. Let it stand a few minutes. The popcorn does not really stick together. It's easy to separate.
That's all! Enjoy. Best if eaten fresh.
