My older sister used to make this for us as kids. Be sure to add a couple drops of food coloring to the syrup before you mix it with the popcorn. The kids will love it.



This was exactly what I was looking for: cheap, easy and simple. My kids thought it was very yummy. Like other readers I did 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. I also added a half teaspoon vanilla after the 4 minutes of cooking, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, (because I used plain popcorn. I will definitely make this recipe again.



This was so easy. It was a little on the sweet side. I would adjust that next time.
