Sweet Memories Popcorn Balls

SUBMITTED BY: Sarah Baudoin

6-7 quarts original popped corn*
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup Sweet Memories cane syrup
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/3 block butter
1 teaspoon baking soda


*Pop corn in an air popper or in the microwave. Set aside.

Mix sugar, brown sugar, cane syrup, water, vinegar and butter in a large saucepan. Place on a high fire and allow sugar and butter to melt. Once at a rolling boil, drop fire to low and cook until the syrup reaches a hard crack stage or 310 degrees F.

Remove from fire and add 1 teaspoon baking soda. Pour over popped corn and mix quickly.

With hands lathered in butter for easy rolling, roll syrup-covered popcorn into balls. Let cool and enjoy!
