Red Hot Candied Popcorn


  • 2 bags microwavable popcorn popped
  • 1 stick 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 bag 6 ounces red hot candies


  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Put the popped popcorn, removing in unpopped kernels, into a large bowl.
  • In a small saucepan over medium low heat, melt the butter, sugar, corn syrup & red hot candies. This will take a bit of time for the candies to completely melt. Stir occasionally as it heats.
  • Once everything is completely melted, slowly pour the sauce over the popcorn, tossing to evenly coat.
  • Spread the popcorn out onto 2 large baking sheets. Bake for 20 - 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.
