I made exactly as directed but did not like the tang from the vinegar. They are very sweet and tangy, just not my preference. The balls were soggy as well, but I think that is because my large bowl of popcorn and the instructors may not have been the same size. Thank you.

I wanted to make popcorn balls for a Harvest Party tonight and found I was out of corn syrup. So I chose this recipe. I poured one batch over 6 quarts of popped corn. I put some orange food coloring in the syrup. I also used margarine in place of butter since I have a child who is allergic to milk. I was so surprised at how good these were. It made 24 popcorn balls and I can't stop trying to eat all the little crumbs left in the bowl. Yummy!!!!

Thanks for your great family recipe Nancy. We are an English family living in Australia, where Halloween is not so popular. But my kids are 5 & 6 so I encourage them to enter into the 'spirit' of all events. I chose your recipe, because I liked the simple sugar, vinegar & water ingredients. We are not big on corn syrup over here, as other recipes called for. I made 12 brains, which I sprinkled with red food colouring - they are scrumptious - whoops, how do I know that? Better leave some for tonight's Halloween gathering. Richelle
