- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄3 cup white Karo
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 quarts popped popcorn
- In a medium saucepan, mix all ingredients except the vanilla.
- Cook until mixture reaches 270 degrees, or brittle ball. (approx. 10-15 min over medium high heat)
- Take off heat and stir in vanilla.
- Pour over the popcorn, and stir lightly and quickly to coat. Shape quickly with butter coated hands (important - the butter keeps the syrup from sticking to and burning your hands). Note: If desired, food coloring can be added before cooking.
compared to other popcorn ball recepies i've made this was hard half way through rolling the batch the rest got so hard i couldn't finish rolling into balls. it stuck horribly to your teeth and not much of a sweet taste with it.
BEST ol'fashioned popcorn balls !!! Just like when I was a kid !!
Very easy to make, taste just like mom's.
