Ingredients

  • 4

    quarts popped popcorn

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1/2

    cup packed brown sugar

  • 1/2

    cup water

  • 1/2

    cup light corn syrup

  • 1

    teaspoon white vinegar

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    cup butter

  • 8 to 10

    drops green food coloring

Directions

Place popcorn in a large roasting pan; keep warm in a 250° fahrenheit oven. Meanwhile, in a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugars, water, corn syrup, vinegar and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reads 260° (hard-ball stage). Remove from the heat; stir in butter until melted. Stir in food coloring. Drizzle over warm popcorn and toss to coat. Cool. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 6 quarts.
