  • 5 cups (200g) store-bought caramel popcorn
  • 2 cups (440g) white (granulated) sugar 
  • ⅔ cup (160ml) light corn syrup 
  • ⅓ cup (80ml) water
  • 1 tablespoon bicarbonate of (baking) soda, sifted
  1. Spread the popcorn on a large 30cm x 42cm lightly greased shallow  roasting tray lined with non-stick baking paper and set aside. 
  2. Place the sugar, corn syrup  and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir to combine and bring to the boil. 
  3. Insert a sugar (candy) thermometer and cook for 15–17 minutes or until the temperature reaches 152°C (305°F).
