This is a great goodie to whip up when the Trick-or-Treat supplies begin to run low. It’s fast, affordable and fun! Popcorn balls are also a traditional Christmas treat.
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup light corn syrup (substitute honey, if desired) 1/2 teaspoon salt
5 or 6 drops food dye (your favorite color)
8-10 cups popcorn, popped
Stir sugar, margarine, corn syrup, salt and food coloring in a large pot over medium heat until the margarine is melted and all of the ingredients are completely combined. Remove from heat. Add popcorn and stir until thoroughly coated. Allow to cool slightly.
With buttered hands, grab a handful of popcorn mixture. Cup hands shaping the mixture into a tight balls. Place each ball on waxed paper when completed. Wrap each ball individually in cellophane.
