Popcorn Balls

Happy Halloween Everyone! I hope you are all having a spooktaular day!
I made a treat, popcorn balls! I remember eating these as a kid. I loved them.

I added Reece’s Pieces to kick up the Halloween flare!

They are super cute and tasty!

What you need,

1 cup of unpopped popcorn
¾ cups white sugar
¾ cups brown sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
½ cup water
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
¼ tsp. baking soda

Pop the popcorn and remove any un-popped kernels. In a saucepan, combine the white sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, water, butter and vinegar. Cook mixture over medium heat until it reaches soft ball stage, 240 degrees. Remove from heat and add in the baking soda. Pour over the popcorn and stir to coat. Stir in the Reece's pieces.  Spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray and form into balls. You will have to spray your hands every 2 or 3 balls or it will start to stick! You don’t want that!

Set on some wax paper to firm up.
Wrap tightly in saran wrap for up to a week.

I am lucky enough to be visiting my parents and my sister in Regina this week, which means I get take my niece trick or treating tonight. I am very excited!

I hope you all have a great Halloween!
