Steps

  • Remove any un-popped kernels before moving on with the recipe.)In a large saucepan combine butter, sugar, & light corn syrup. Bring mixture to a boil & cook 3 minutes stirring frequently. Do not overcook or it won't be soft & chewy.
  • Remove from heat & add vanilla (careful it bubbles up.) Then add marshmallows & stir until melted.
  • Pour just under 1/3 of the mixture into the bowl with the kettle corn. Fold the popcorn until coated.
  • Pour half of the remaining mixture into a clean bowl. Color one half yellow & the other half orange with food coloring or paste (I used Wilton paste.)Quickly add colored marshmallow mixture to the two separate bowls of butter flavored popcorn. Fold/stir to coat the popcorn. Allow all the different colored popcorns to cool for 5-10 minutes.Grease hands with pan spray & grab a handful of yellow popcorn.
  • Place in the bottom of a clear cellophane bag. Grab a handful of orange & place on top of the yellow. Grab a small handful of white popcorn & place it on top of the orange stacking the colors to resemble candy corn. Lightly press & shape the popcorn inside the bag into a triangle/candy corn shape. Fat on bottom where the yellow is & skinny on top where the white is. Press a few pieces of candy corn on the sides of the sticky popcorn. Tie bag shut with a ribbon & Candy Corn "Corn" tag. Repeat with remaining bags. *It's fine to fill them all at once, then shape them & add the candy corn pieces, but I wanted to tell the step by step instructions before you get too excited :)
