Popcorn Balls Low Carb & Sugar Free
2 bags microwave popcorn
1 cup LC Foods Natural Sweet White Sweetener
1/2 cup Da Vinci Vanilla Gourmet Sugar Free Syrup
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 tablespoon butter
Makes 10 Servings
Pop the corn and remove the unpopped kernels. Place into a large mixing bowl. Mix the sweetener, syrup and vinegar together in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring constantly to a temperature of 240°(soft ball). Immediately turn off heat and add the butter. Stir until blended and then pour over the popcorn. Using a long handled wooden spoon, quickly toss the popcorn with the hot mixture. You have to work fast before the candy sets up and be careful not to touch the hot mixture.
After the corn is well coated, and the mixture is cooled a bit, butter your hands and gently (carefully) grab up handfuls and pack into balls. Be sure to recoat your hands with butter in between making each ball.
