Directions:
Pop the corn and discard the unpopped kernels. Put the popped corn in a brown grocery bag. While the corn in still popping, put the butter, sugar, salt and syrup in a glass bowl and bring it to a boil in your microwave. Stir after one minute and let it boil for an additional minute. Add baking soda and stir well, until thickened. It will turn light in color and look like taffy. Pour this mixture over the popped corn in the paper bag and shake well. Put the paper bag in the microwave oven and cook 1 1/2 minutes. Remove and shake well. Return to the microwave and cook another 1 1/2 minutes. Shake again. Open the bag and let it cool. You can even tear the bag down the side and speed up the process! Once completely cooled, break up the chunks and store in ziplock bags or ice cream containers.
