20 ml butter or brick margarine
 375 ml Brown Sugar
 90 ml cold water
 6 cups cups popped popcorn

1

Melt the butter and add the sugar and water.

2

Stir over moderate heat until dissolved, then bring to the boil. Cover with a lid, cook for about 3 minutes, or until the steam has washed the sugar crystals down from the sides of the pot.

3

Boil until soft ball stage has been reached (when a little syrup is dropped into iced water it forms a ball which flattens of its own accord when picked up with the fingers. About 25 - 30 minutes).

4

Remove from heat and pour over popcorn, stirring gently to coat completely.

5

When cool enough to handle, mold into balls or lollipops, and insert a small stick, if desired.
