Recipe by Grandma Carter
3 gallons popcorn makes 30 balls. Grandma had an almost identical recipe in her box called Fabulous Popcorn Balls. It called for 1/4 lb. of margarine rather than the butter and had these directions: "Bring to a boil in a heavy pan the margarine, Karo and sugar. Add sweetened condensed milk and stir fast to prevent burning. Boil 3 minutes. Pour over 12 to 14 quarts popcorn and leave until just warm; then form into balls. Peanuts may be added." These were so good on Christmas Eve!

I loved Grandma's popcorn balls and I'm so glad I can continue to make them. I popped 2 cups of corn to give me 4 gallons. This seemed just right for the amount of syrup - not to gooey. It made about 40 balls.
