Directions:
Pop the 1/2 cup of popcorn and set aside. Mix the rest of your ingredients together (except the butter)and bring to a boil over medium high heat on the stove, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and cook until it becomes hard. To test this, drop some in cold water and it will form a hard ball. After hard balls are formed, reduce heat and stir in butter. Pour completed mixture over your popped popcorn and form into balls (the size of a softball or baseball) with your buttered hands.
