8 c. popcorn, popped 1/2 c. dark corn syrup 1/2 c. brown sugar, packed 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 c. margarine or butter Food coloring, optional
Combine brown sugar, corn syrup, margarine and salt in large pot. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. For a festive feeling, add red or green food coloring to the mixture. Add popped corn folding it into the caramel mixture until well coated (2-3 minutes). Cool a little while, until safe to handle. Dip hands in cold water and shape popcorn into balls about 2" in diameter. Place on parchment or waxed paper and cool. When done, place balls in plastic wrap or bags to store.
