this is Mom’s recipe. She used to make this on Hallowe’en for us.

1 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup Lily White Corn Syrup

1/3 cup water

¼ cup butter or margarine

¾ tsp. salt

1 ½ Tbsp. Dark Molasses

¾ tsp. Vanilla

3 quarts of Popped Corn

Stir all ingredients for the syrup until the sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking without stirring to 270 F or until the syrup forms a brittle ball in cold water. Pour the syrup over the popped corn and mix well. Grease your hands with butter and shape the mixture into balls. Mom usually makes three times the quantity.
