Caramel Popcorn Balls
Yield: Makes 12-14 balls or squares

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon white or cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/4 cup salted butter, plus more for bowl and hands
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 cups popped popcorn

Directions:

  1. Grease a large mixing bowl with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a 3- to 4-quart heavy saucepan, stir together sugar, corn syrup, vinegar, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and stir in butter. Reduce heat to medium-low and boil gently until light golden brown, about 3 minutes, stirring often, then remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  3. Put popped corn into the large mixing bowl. Pour syrup mixture over the popcorn and stir with a spatula until popcorn is evenly coated. As soon as the mixture is cool enough to handle, butter your hands and shape the popcorn into 2- to 3-inch balls. When the balls are cool, wrap them in plastic or waxed paper.
