I wasn’t sure what to call this. All I knew was I made popcorn balls with vanilla candiquik and whatever else I wanted to throw in. Feel free to do the same…in the meantime, one of the many possible combinations of my “white trash” popcorn balls:
I thought about calling them just popcorn balls, lame. How about vanilla, chocolate, almond popcorn? Hmm..too long. Vanilla, whateva-you-want-to- throw-in-it popcorn.
Ok, you see? I’m obsessing about this.
Realistically I’m not concerned what you would like to call this popcorn concoction. I just care that you eat it.
Delicious, irrestible, quick n’ easy. Snack away.
I used an air popper with 2/3 c. yellow popcorn kernels….salted to your liking.
In a medium sized pan, heat 1 1/2 cups light corn syup over medium-low heat, until it begins boiling.
While waiting for the corn syrup to boil, melt the vanilla candiquik for 1 minute in the microwave, stir, and mic another 15 seconds if necessary.
Once corn syrup is boiling, remove from burner and pour the entire tray of candiquik in. Stir with a spatula until well mixed.
Pour this over the popcorn in a large bowl, mix with the spatula to coat every single kernel of popped corn …or most of them.
Spill a little reeses pieces in, maybe some almonds…what would you like in them?
Then simply form these into balls with your two hands, and place on wax paper.
Cute and sooo tasty. Perfect for football, after school, midnight snack, plus Halloween is approaching…
