Popcorn in a candy coating flavored with cinnamon oil.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1/2 cup white corn syrup
- 1 cup margarine
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 drop red food coloring
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon oil
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 8 quarts popped popcorn
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (93 degrees C).
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine corn syrup, margarine and salt. Heat to 242 to 248 degrees F (116 to 120 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a firm but pliable ball. Remove from heat and stir in food coloring, cinnamon oil and baking soda. Pour over popcorn; toss to coat.
Place popcorn on baking sheet and into preheated oven. Bake 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
