One of my family's favorite recipes is an easy, and easily adaptable,
recipe for carmel corn.

Carmel Corn

Put 3 1/2 L popped corn in a large paper bag (no unpopped kernels)

1/2 cup melted margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 t salt
1/4 cup cornsyrup
Microwave 2 min, stir and repeat.
(If you put this recipe to music, that would be the chorus.)

Add 1/2 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.

Come to think of it, this might be a good idea for
Christmas presents......
