Make 6 cups popcorn (1 bag popped microwave popcorn minus 1 cup). Sift through popcorn to remove any hard kernels as popcorn is transferred to a large bowl which has been sprayed with a cooking oil. Stir candy corn into the popcorn. Set aside. Make a batch of hard candy using CK Hard Candy Mix and 1/3 cup water. Cook to 250 degrees. Add orange food color. Cook to 300 degrees. Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 teaspoon orange oil or concentrated flavor and 1 T. butter. Pour over the popcorn/candycorn mixture and stir using a silicone spatula. Quickly form into balls with buttered hands. Put into bags and secure with curling ribbon.
