Mother Goose Popcorn

So yummy.

Pop 4 qts of popcorn. I use an air popper. Put in a large bowl.

2 cups sugar
1 c. milk

2 tbsp butter or margarine
1 tsp light corn syrup

Stir and cook over medium to medium high heat. Cook and stir for 12 minutes or until soft ball stage. Take off heat and add a few drops of food coloring and 1 tsp or vanilla. Pour over popped corn and stir to coat. Spread out on a cookie sheet to cool and sprinkle a small amount of salt over candied corn. Place in a container to store if it lasts that long.

Use different colors of food coloring and different flavors of extract.
The most recent batch used orange food coloring and peach extract. I have also used the candy oils, just use less as these are strong.
