  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Food coloring and flavoring of your choice (You can test the flavor as you go.)


Bring all ingredients to a boil over medium to high heat, stirring constantly. Boil for two minutes. Remove from heat, and pour over two batches of popped popcorn. Stir to ensure all kernels are coated, and the sugar appears dry. Enjoy.
