Prep: 15 min. + cooling


6 quarts


  • 4 quarts popped popcorn
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter

Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reads 260° (hard-ball stage).
