Quick Popcorn Ball Wreath

Category: Christmas, Snacks

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Granulated sugar
  • 3/4 c Water
  • 1/4 c Light corn syrup
  • 1/2 ts Vinegar
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • 6 c Popped corn


In saucepan, combine sugar, water, corn syrup and vinegar; bring to boil.
Cover and cook for 3 minutes until steam washes down side of pan. Uncover
and cook, without stirring, until syrup reaches soft-crack stage
(290øF/140øC on candy thermometer.) Remove from heat and stir in food
coloring (if using).

Pour immediately over popcorn; stir gently with wooden spoon to coat.

With buttered hands, gently press popcorn in small balls (mixture will be
very hot.) If mixture cools and becomes too hard to shape, warm in 350øF
oven until pliable. Let cool on waxed paper. Wrap balls in colored
cellophane or clear plastic wrap. Tie with colored string. Makes about 12
balls. Note* Easy-to-make popcorn balls are always popular with kids,
especially when wrapped in squares of colored cellophane with name tags and
bows. Arrange the balls in a wreath shape. Source: Canadian Living Merry
