Grandpa's Popcorn Balls
Delicious! Before I made this recipe I tried the Best Ever Popcorn Ball recipe posted on this site (because it was well reviewed and seemed faster), but ended up throwing them out - they just tasted like confectioners sugar. It is worth the extra time to boil the sugar to hard crack stage. These turned out crispy and light. I used both the vanilla and the vinegar. For the popcorn, I popped 1 cup of popcorn seeds, but ended up only using about 2/3 or 3/4 of the popcorn. To help shape them I started with buttered muffin tins. I scooped out the popcorn using a buttered 1/2 cup dry measure and pressed them into the muffin tins. After I had all the tins full, I reshaped the popcorn into rounder balls using my greased hands. This seemed to work well - it allowed me to portion out the popcorn while it was hot, and work them by hand before they got too cool to press into shape.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls
Nice and chewy, but all I could taste was the confectioners sugar. Way too sweet, and not rich.
