1 bag microwave popcorn, popped (about 6 to 7 cups popped popcorn)
¼ cup butter
3 Tbsp light corn syrup
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ tsp LorAnn Oils Red Liquid Food Coloring
¼ tsp LorAnn Oils Super-Strength Watermelon Flavor
1⁄3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, optional

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place the popped popcorn in a large bowl, discarding any unpopped kernels.
  2. Preheat oven to 300° F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
