How to Make Popcorn Balls - Recipe
Whenever we watch movies or any of our favorite shows, popcorn is the most favorite snack to dig in. I will share to you guys how to make popcorn balls.

60 ml(2.5 cup) butter or margarine
240 ml(1 cup) popcorn
2.5 ml(0.5 teaspoon) salt
120 ml(0.5 cup) molasses
120 ml(0.5 cup) dark or light corn syrup
7 ml(0.5 tablespoon) vinegar
another 22 ml(1.5 tablespoons) butter or margarine

  1. Melt 60 ml butter or margarine in a large skillet
  2. Add popcorn and spread evenly on bottom
  3. Cover tightly and shake skillet over heat until corn is popped
  4. Put popped corn in mixing bowl, sprinkle with salt, and mix gently.
  5. Put molasses, corn syrup, and vinegar in large saucepad, and mix.
  6. Boil, stirring occasionally, until syrup reaches soft-ball stage,  115° C(240°F).
  7. Continue to boil, stirring constantly, until syrup reaches soft-crack stage, 132°C(270°F)
  8. Add butter or margarine, and stir until just melted.
  9. Pour syrup over popped corn, stirring gently to mix thoroughly.
  10. Shape with hands, when cool enough to handle, into balls and about 6 cm(2.5)inches in diameter. In forming balls, use as little pressure as possible so that popped corn will not be broken and balls will not to bee too tightly packed. A little butter or margarine on hands before shaping balls helps to keep candy from sticking to hands.
  11. Place on wax paper to harden. Yield about ten 2.5 inch balls.
