Put 3-1/2 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 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.
