Preheat oven to 250° F. Spray a large oven-safe metal bowl with nonstick cooking spray and empty the cheese puffs into it.
In a heavy saucepan, mix sugar, margarine and corn syrup. Bring to a boil and keep boiling for five minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove pan from heat and mix in baking soda. Mixture will turn white and become slightly foamy.
Pour syrup mixture over cheese puffs and toss VERY thoroughly to coat all the puffs. Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Spread baked puffs onto waxed paper, separating as much as possible (you will end up with a few stuck in clumps). Allow to cool completely.
To say that you can't eat just one of these is a gross understatement. Strongly consider doubling this batch.
If you use a large enough bowl, you can cook a double recipe all at once. Increase baking time by 20 minutes or more, as needed. Watch the puffs and pull them from the oven when they begin to take on a slight golden-brown color.
Now, select your favorite adult beverage, crank up the big-screen, and settle in.
