Ooey Gooey Goodness
1 box brown sugar
1 cup white (Karo) corn syrup
Combine and boil 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook to soft ball stage (drop a bit into a bowl of water, and if you can form it into a ball, it's ready for the next step).
Add one cube butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
then pop enough corn to fill a couple large bowls, and toss together. My friend (whose mom gave me this recipe) insists it has to be the old fashioned kernels that you cook in oil, but I cheated and used microwave type. I got the natural kind without butter and just a bit of salt, and I used three bags.
Makes 40 popcorn balls, or use for chewy type caramel apples or apple slices. Super sweet, so kids tend to like this more than adults. Store in tupperware, or it gets kind-of soggy.
