I know that yesterday I said I would tell you about my nativities. But after working so long all day and into the night on work problems, I am exhausted. So today, I am simply going to share a favorite recipe. It is a Christmas tradition around here to make popcorn balls. We love to make red ones and green ones. The funny thing is that Chandler hates popcorn. We could skip this completely each year and make him happy. But I love them and especially this recipe. We have made them every year I have been married and that is a long time. I think I will insist we make these today so I can indulge in the sugary goodness they bring.
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Butter (the real stuff)
1/3 Cup water
1/4 Cup Karo Syrup
3/4 tsp. salt (optional)
1 tsp. Vanilla
Food Coloring (optional)
12-16 Cups Popcorn
Combine ingredients except for vanilla and food coloring. Cook to hard ball stage. Add the vanilla and coloring. Stir and pour over popcorn. Form into balls. Enjoy.
What Holiday Bliss are you celebrating today?
