Popcorn balls??

Post by Texas_Dawn on Sun Dec 23, 2012 2:17 am

Every year cm would talk about how she would make popcorn balls for her ex even though she hated popcorn. Well I am not fond of it either however, I have a burning desire to make some this year just because they remind me of her so much.... Only thing is I lost that recipe somewhere along the way and the one person I knew could tell me, can't. Do you have a handy recipe nearby that you can share?

I love popcorn, but not sweet.


Sierra I love you


Here's a recipe I found...


Traditional Popcorn Balls Recipe



Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

  • Yield: 20 Servings

Ingredients



  • 7 quarts popped popcorn
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Food coloring, optional

Directions




  • Place popcorn in a large baking pan; keep warm in a 200° oven.
  • In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 235° (soft-ball stage).
  • Remove from the heat. Add the butter, vanilla and food coloring if desired; stir until butter is melted. Immediately pour over popcorn and stir until evenly coated.
  • When mixture is cool enough to handle, quickly shape into 3-in. balls, dipping hands in cold water to prevent sticking. Yield: 20 servings.

Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
