Grandma’s Sugar PoPs!

found this one at www.howdoesshe.com you can find the tutoria;l there...can't wait to try it!!

2 smaller bags or one large bag puffed corn (Chesters)- also called hulless popcorn. Put in a big soup or roasting pan and warm in oven while you make the syrup (this helps the sugar syrup coat better when it is ready to pour over the top)

Syrup:
4 sticks butter (2 cups)
2 cups sugar
4 Tbls. water (grandma says this helps the butter not burn on the bottom)

Bring to a low boil and boil softly for 7 minutes.
Turn off heat, then add 1 tsp. vanilla (grandma likes to dump a little more for good measure.:)

Take puffs out of the oven and pour syrup over puffs while stirring
pour and stir, pour and stir until they are all evenly coated.
Then dump out on wax paper.

Let dry over night, if you can wait that long…we couldn’t! They will get crunchier and meltier (new word:) as they dry.
