Cinnamon Candy Popcorn

Comment on this recipe

This makes a great gift at Christmas. Just put the popcorn in an old or new empty fruitcake pan. It looks very festive and its a great, brightly colored snack.

Ingredients

8 quarts popped popcorn, plain
1 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 package (9 ounces) red hot candies

Instructions

Place popped popcorn in a large bowl and set aside. In a sauce pan, combine butter, corn syrup and candies. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour butter mixture over the popcorn and mix thoroughly. Turn into two buttered 15x10x1-inch baking pans. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from pans and place on wax paper to cool. Break apart. Store in airtight containers. Makes 8 quarts.
