Ingredients:  
2 C. sugar
1 1/2 C. water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 C. light corn syrup
1 tsp. vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cube butter
2 big bowls full of popcorn

Directions:
Directions:
In saucepan on medium heat, combine everything but butter. Stir once in awhile. Have a dish with a little cold water by the stove to test when syrup is ready. When syrup looks dissolved, but not boiling, take a few drops from mixture with spoon and drop in cold water. Make a ball with fingers and press down. If it leaves a fingerprint it’s perfect. If it’s cooked too long you’ll have to start over. Pour syrup over popcorn and with butter thick on your hands squeeze everything together to form popcorn balls.

Personal Notes:
My mom and I used to make these together when I was little. Now I make them with Maia, Savannah, Cameron and Jack (sometimes). They're great to make for Hallowe’en.
