2 cups Sugar
1 cup Light Corn Syrup
2/3 cup butter
24 cups popped, salted popcorn (I used 3 bags of microwave, simply salted, popcorn and it was the perfect amount.)
2 envelopes Kool-Aid, any flavor
1 tsp. baking soda


Spray a large roasting pan (turkey sized, if possible!) with nonstick cooking spray. Pour popped corn into the roasting pan. Make sure you remove all of the unpopped kernels!!!

In a medium-sized saucepan, melt together the butter, corn syrup, and sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil and add your candy thermometer. Boil the mixture until it reaches 250*, about 3-5 minutes.

In a separate bowl, combine the Kool-Aid and baking soda.

Once the sugar mixture has come to temperature, remove it from the heat, and carefully stir in the Kool-Aid mixture. The sugar will bubble up a bit, but keep stirring until it is well combined, about one minute.

Pour the hot sugar mixture over the popped popcorn. Carefully mix until well combined.

Place the roasting pan in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Stir and then repeat the process 3 more times.

Take the popcorn out of the oven and, quickly, spread it out onto waxed paper to cool. Break apart into pieces. The corn should stay nice and crunchy if kept in an airtight container, for a week or more.
