I would love to have the recipe for the
popcorn balls that have a caramel taste,
and are crispy.
Our family just doesn't care for the
marshmallow ones at all...
Thanks in advance
My mother made these at least 50 years ago. I don't really remember what they were like, but they're certainly old-fashioned.
3 qts popped corn
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup white corn syrup (Karo)
1 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
Discard all imperfect kernels & put the popped corn into a large pan. Cook sugar, Karo & water ot the medium-crack stage (280Â° on a candy thermometer.) Add vanilla & salt. Pour over the corn, stirring with a spoon so that all kernels will be evenly coated. Shape the corn into balls, lay on waxed paper & wrap in waxed paper.~~
Below is another recipe for Caramel Popcorn Balls that got good reviews.

Ginger's recipe sounds like the one our family has used for years. Mom would put Red and Green food coloring in the mix for Christmas.
David, I remember my mother coloring them for a school sale (don't know how she did it but probably the same way.) At 7 I thought that was really weird but they were the first thing that sold out. My first lesson that she was ALWAYS right.
Ginger - THANK YOU so much for the recipe!
I hope they're the kind you wanted.
Ginger your right about that, I've lost count on what lesson I'm on!! LOL
