Grandma Mom's Popcorn Balls

Posted on October 31, 2014 at 11:00 PM

Every Halloween, my Grandma Mom would make these popcorn balls. Though she has passed away, her memory is never far from us on Haloween. I made a batch and they were gone in 24 hours.

(And I may have made two batches, but cooked the syrup too long and they are as hard as a rock! So if you make these, be careful and do not overcook them. I had to make a call in to my aunt and she rescued me for the second, perfectly made batch!)


1 1/2 bags popped popcorn (check ingredients & remove kernels)

1 cup karo syrup
2 cup white sugar
1 Tablespoon butter
2 T vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon vanilla (Adam's or Madagascar)

1 teaspoon baking soda.


Line a cookie sheet with foil and pour popped popcorn on the bottom of the sheet. Combine karo syrup, sugar, butter, vinegar and vnailla in a large pot. Cook until soft ball stage (335F) DO NOT OVERCOOK. It is better to be under than over.  Add 1 teaspoon of baking soda & stir quickly. (It will start to bubble) Pour over popcorn and make balls. You may want to use a spoon to stir the syrup & popcorn a bit & then lather your hands with butter. The butter reduces the heat as you make the balls. It will be HOT.

Enjoy! And try to save one for yourself!
