Kool-Aid Popcorn

My little pixie is turning 7 and I made this super tasty Kool-Aid Popcorn for her birthday party!  If you love Kool-Aid and popcorn, this recipe is for you!

My little pixie's colors were turquoise, lavender (heaven help me if I slipped and said blue and purple!), and pink.  Just pink.  I used grape Kool-Aid for the purple, and fruit punch for the pink (red?).  I really hoped it would turn out more pink, but even if the color didn't do what I wanted it to, it still tasted great!

12 cups popped popcorn
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 packet unsweetened Kool-Aid
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Combine butter, corn syrup, and sugar in a medium pan and cook over medium heat, stirring until butter is melted. Increase heat to medium-high until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in the Kool-Aid and baking soda; mix well. Pour the hot mixture over the popcorn and stir until it’s well coated. Pour the popcorn out onto a large, rimmed, baking sheet that's been greased, and spread evenly. Cook for 40 minutes at 250, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool completely and break into pieces.
