Add a gummy worm to this little treat for some Halloween fun.

Yield: Makes about 10

Ingredients

  • 20 cups popped popcorn
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup gummy worm candies

Preparation

  1. Place popcorn in a large heat-proof bowl; set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, mix together remaining ingredients except worm candies. Bring to boil. Stir mixture until it reaches the thread stage, or 230 to 233 degrees on a candy thermometer. Pour over popcorn; mix well and form into balls with well-buttered hands.
