Classic Popcorn Balls
This is a classic recipe, homemade popcorn balls are work, but they are so much better than commercial popcorn balls that I believe they are worth the effort.
Don’t attempt to make the balls by yourself, the popcorn sets ups very quickly you will need someone to help you quickly form the candy.
2/3 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup sugar
½ teaspoon salt
2 quarts popped corn
Bring syrup and salt to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Add food coloring, if desired. Pour syrup over the popped corn and toss until coated. Butter your hands and quickly form the corn into balls.
If you would like to mix gumdrops or other candy with the popcorn, mix it with the popped corn before you even start the syrup. You will not have time once the syrup is added. The popcorn goes from pliable to hard very quickly so don’t waste anytime.
