    Oh yeah, those too but I meant Popcorn Balls this time. :cool:

    Just made a batch and yum! Anybody else think these are a food of the gods if there ever was one?

    Old Fashion Popcorn Balls

    INGREDIENTS:



    • 2 cups white sugar
    • 1 cup light corn syrup
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1/4 cup water
    • salt to taste
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 5 quarts popped popcorn
    DIRECTIONS:



    1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, corn syrup, butter and water. Stir and heat to hard-crack stage or 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Remove from heat, add vanilla or vinegar; mix well.
    2. Pour slowly over popped popcorn while stirring. Shape into 3 inch round balls.

    You can make popcorn ball sculptures by sticking them together with little pretzel sticks. My kids used to get a kick out of tearing into popcorn ball centerpieces at holiday parties.
