Mother Goose (crystallized) Popcorn

2 cups sugar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3-4 drops food coloring
8-9 cups popped popcorn (1/2 cup unpopped)

Pop popcorn.
In a saucepan, combine sugar water, and butter over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook without stirring until it reaches a hard ball stage (about 255°). Remove from heat, add vanilla and food coloring to make desired color, mix well. Pour over popcorn, mixing until candy mixture thoroughly coats popcorn. Pour out onto foil to cool. Break apart.
