6 Cups Popped Popcorn, Set aside for later
2/3 C Sugar
1/2 C Water
21/2 T Light Corn Syrup
1/8 t Salt
1/2 t Vinegar
Pop the Popcorn and set aside for when candy is done.
Have sticks ready or mold pan greased.
Use Heavy bottom saucepan with a Candy Thermometer clipped to the side. If you don't have a Candy Thermometer, a regular one will wok, or you can use the old, Ice cold water test for hardness trick. Bring Ingredients to a boil. Cook covered for about 3 minutes until steam washes down sides of pan. Uncover and cook, without stirring, nearly to the hard crack stage, about 290°. If using cold water method, be sure that it is ICE cold, candy will form hard ball at bottom of cup.
Place popcorn in Large bowl. Pour over popcorn's surface, gently turning with wooden spoon. Lightly butter hands. Once all kernels are lightly coated, scoop up amount desired to be placed on stick and and form around stick. You can also use a mold to make interesting shapes for Holiday themed get together's, such as, Easter.
