How to make it

  • in a heavy pan put sugar, karo syrup, butter, water, salt
  • over med heat stir until sugar dissolves
  • boil to soft ball stage- 228' -230' F
  • remove from heat add vanilla
  • pour over unsalted, unbuttered popcorn*****
  • pour little at a time
  • let cool enough to handle
  • then with buttered hands shape into balls
  • **** I found that the bottom of a 21 lb turkey roasting pan was the approx. amount of popped popcorn needed for 1 batch
  • to make it easier I would also spread it out on a commercial cookie sheet
  • to fix nice for gifts:
  • I would get the colored plastic wraps ( blue, red, yellow, and green)
  • from the store and tear off approx square pieces and put the popcorn ball in the middle.. bringing the sides up to the top of the ball and tying with a couple of pieces of curling ribbon..
