Tuesday Thyme: Popcorn Balls

Merry Christmas! I am sure everyone is overdosing on candy but here is something we made in my cooking class and my mom loved them so maybe you will to!

Easy Caramel Popcorn Balls

2 1/4 c. brown sugar
1 cube butter
1 c. light corn syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/3 c. unpopped popcorn

1. Pop the popcorn. Put popped popcorn in multiple bowls. Don't overfill bowls.
2. In a 4-quart saucepan, boil the brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup on medium-high heat.
3. Add the sweetened condensed milk and cook, stirring constantly to the soft ball stage (235 degrees).
4. Pour over the popped popcorn. Do not scrape the pan. Stir well. Form into balls and wrap individually in plastic wrap.
