Directions:
Pop the corn and place it in a brown paper grocery bag. Set aside.

Combine all ingredients except soda and popcorn, in 1 1/2 to 2 quart microwavable dish. Bring to a boil, then cook on full power for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in soda. Immediately pour syrup over corn. Roll down top of the bag to close it tightly and shake vigorously. Cook in bag on high in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from microwave, shake and cook another 1 1/2 minutes. (May possibly need another 1 1/2 minutes. Watch closely or it will burn.) Pour into pan and allow to cool.

The larger amount of popped corn yields a "thinner" coating of caramel on each kernel which I like. If you like a heavier coating, use the 4 cups.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I don't usually need the 3rd cooking time. The caramel coating will be sticky when you pour it out of the bag, but will crisp up nicely as it cools.
