  5. Stir in the sugar and the corn syrup until blended in well.
  6. Add the water and stir to blend in.

  8. Continue cooking until a candy thermometer reaches 250 degrees or hard ball stage.

  10. When the mixture cools enough to handle form it into 3 inch balls.

These popcorn balls are a fun change from the classic popcorn balls most of us grew up with.  When forming these balls, dip your hands in cold water to keep the popcorn from sticking.  Wrap the popcorn balls in plastic wrap and tie the tops with a spooking Halloween ribbon.
