  • about 12 cups of popcorn (this is about 2 of those microwave bags)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 1 packet KOOL-AID Unsweetened Drink Mix, any flavor
  • ½ tsp. baking soda

  2. Spread your popped popcorn into a largish roasting pan.
  3. BRING sugar, corn syrup and butter to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat; cook 2-3 min., stirring often so it doesn't scorch. Remove from heat. Add Kool-Aid drink mix and baking soda; mix well. Pour over popcorn; stir gently to evenly coat popcorn coat evenly.
  4. BAKE 10 min. Carefully stir popcorn to make sure it's well coated. Repeat this step 3 more times for a total baking time of 40 min.
  5. COOL your coated popcorn on a large cookie sheet covered in waxed paper. Break up in pieces and enjoy!
