A favorite treat, very popular with my family, hope it's just as popular with yours.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Butter the sides of a large saucepan. In the sauce pan combine the sugar, water, salt, corn syrup and vinegar. Cook over medium heat to the hard ball stage 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Stir in the vanilla and slowly pour the hot mixture over the popped popcorn, stirring just to mix well.
  • Butter hands lightly and shape into balls. Mixture will be hot so be careful. Place balls on waxed paper to cool.
