Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 34 cup white syrup
  • 14 cup good molasses ("Good" molasses to me means that to taste them with a spoon that they have a good flavor))
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 gallons air-popped popcorn

Directions

  1. Cook above ingredients (except popcorn) over medium heat for 3-1/2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and pour over popcorn.
  3. Mix with a spoon and start shaping into balls at once.
  4. Have a small pan of cold water close by so you can dip your hands in it if your hands get too hot.
  5. This recipe works BEST when you have a "helper" to help you make the popcorn balls while the syrup mixture is still easy to work with, and is much more fun doing with a helper.
  6. Last, but not least, make "extra", as if you're doing these to give away, you "are" going to want to keep some for you and yours to eat... ;)
