Grandpa's Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
DON'T go for hard crack stage on the caramel sauce if you like CHEWY popcorn balls! The first two batches I made I waited for hard crack stage and the popcorn/caramel was terribly hard to mix and turned to hard candy right away. The balls did form nicely but when we went to eat them, we could only eat 1/2 before the caramel stuck to our teeth in a death grip/filling wrenching way. No one ate more than 1/2 ball. The next batch I made I cooked the caramel to between soft and firm ball stage(240 F): the popcorn and caramel mixed well, the balls are nice and chewy though forming the balls was a bit tougher but with a little work and buttering your hands, you'll be fine.
