While looking thru some papers, I came across my Mom's recipe for Popcorn Balls. This was a family favorite. We would make them every Halloween afternoon. The neighborhood children loved them [for those children/parents who didn't know our family, we had a selection of very boring candy]. We enjoyed them so much, we would make a batch for Thanksgiving & decorate the balls into turkeys [with construction paper & toothpicks]. Finding this slip of paper makes me smile. Now to share:
Pop seven cups of popcorn [I think yellow popcorn works the best]
In saucepan, medium heat:
1 c Sugar
1/3 c White Corn Syrup
1/4 c Butter or Marg
1/3 c Water
1 Tsp Salt
Heat until drops form in cold water. Add 1 Tsp Vanilla.
Mix into 7 cups of popcorn - roll into balls. Can make apx 80 balls from three lbs of popcorn
