12 2-inch balls Woman’s Day Kitchen

1/2 cup pancake syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups popped corn

Boil syrup, sugar and salt until fairly brittle when tested in cold water, or medium crack stage (270°F. on a candy thermometer). Have popped corn in a large greased bowl. As soon as syrup is removed from heat, pour in a thin stream over the corn, stirring constantly so that each kernel is coated with syrup. Grease hands well and quickly shape corn in small balls. Wrap when cold in wax or transparent paper. Pack the wrapped balls closely together in a wax-paper-lined box.

Sprinkle 1/3 cup sugar into medium-size, heavy saucepan and place over medium heat. Let sugar melt and burn until it becomes a dark golden color. Remove from heat. Slowly add hot water, remaining sugar, milk and corn syrup. Stir until sugar is all moistened and return to heat.

Cool slightly; add vanilla and beat until thick and the gloss begins to disappear. Add nuts and pour candy at once into margarine-greased 8-inch-pan. Cut while still warm into large pieces. When cold wrap each piece in wax paper. Fit snugly into a paper box or carton. Then wrap the box in gay paper.
