HOMEMADE BUTTER CRUNCH POPCORN

This is an old recipe from my childhood.

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup corn syrup
3/4 cup sugar
4 cups popped corn
1 cup unsalted peanuts

In a 2-quart heavy-duty saucepan, combine butter, syrup, and sugar. Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a boil. Reduce the high slightly and continue cooking to 260 degrees on a candy thermometer. Put popcorn and nuts in a large glass bowl and stir to mix well. Pour candy mixture over popcorn and nuts; mix well. Butter hands and form mixture into small bite-sized balls.

Grandma's Vintage Recipes said...

I just came across your blog and I love it! I too collect cookbooks and read them like novels. I also have an extensive collection of vintage recipes handed down from my mother and grandmothers. When time permits, I plan to go back and read all of your blog from start to finish. I'm sure to find some recipes that will bring back childhood memories.
