4 quarts popped corn
1 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
1⁄2 cup light corn syrup
2 tablespoons butter
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon gourmet flavoring (any flavor, flavor amount can be increased as desired)
liquid food coloring (as desired)

Directions
Keep freshly-popped corn warm in large baking pan in 200°F oven.
Combine sugar, corn syrup, butter, salt and cream of tartar in medium saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Cook to 250°F without stirring.
Remove from heat. After boiling action ceases, add flavoring and color. Add soda and stir in quickly but thoroughly. Pour at once while foamy over warm popcorn; mix gently to coat corn. Shape into balls or spread onto cookie sheet and break into pieces when cool.
