  • 40g granulated sugar 

  • 25 g brown sugar

  • 28g corn syrup

  • 150ml of water 

  • Directions
    1.  Toss popcorn and dried fruit together in a large, lightly oiled, heatproof bowl. Oil 2 waxed paper-lined baking  pans and a long metal fork. Set aside.

    2. Bring sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, and water to a boil over medium-high heat in a medium saucepan fitted with a candy thermometer. 

    3. Reduce heat to medium and cook until mixture reaches 260 degrees F.
