Popcorn Balls


Nothing better than making your own popcorn balls! Pop your corn first. You'll need to work quickly before the sugar coating gets too hard. Coat your hands in butter so they don't get too sticky.

Step 1

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, water, syrup, vinegar, and salt. Cook over high heat until mixture reaches 255 degrees (hard-ball stage) on a candy thermometer. Stir in vanilla.

Pour over popped corn, tossing gently to coat. When mixture is cool enough to handle, press popcorn into 3-inch balls with lightly greased hands.

Cool completely on waxed paper.
