From: atripp@... (Allyson Tripp) Date: Tue, 7 Sep 1993 17:16:33 GMT Put 3-½ Liters popped corn in a large paper bag (no unpopped kernels).
Take margarine, brown sugar, salt and cornsyrup and place in microwave-safe dish. Microwave 2 min, stir and repeat. (If you put this recipe to music, that would be the chorus.) Add ½ t baking powder, stir it in the mixture, and pour over popcorn in the bag. Close and shake, Microwave 2 min, shake and repeat.
In these days of plastic grocery bags, I have sometimes been reduced to making it in a very large microwavable bowl, which is much more difficult.
One time, when out of brown sugar, and desperate for some kind of candied popcorn, I used white sugar, and added a couple teaspoons of cinnamon. It worked wonderfully, as the candy coating cooks to a crunchy shell in the microwave (that is, if you let it cool before eating it.) I expect you could add any flavoring or colors you wanted with good results.
