 Ingredients List

  • 8 c Popped corn
  • 1 c Granulated sugar

Currants and diced apricots can replace the candy.

Place popped corn in bowl; set aside.

In small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring sugar, corn syrup, water,
butter and salt to boil; cook, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Cook,
without stirring, for 10 minutes or until at hard-ball stage of 254F 123C

to shield against splatters, carefully stir in vanilla.

Pour over popped corn; using greased spoon, toss until coated. Stir in
candy. Wearing rubber gloves, form into 2-inch balls; let cool on baking
