Conference Popcorn


You may never know what results come of your action, but if you do nothing there will be no result.–Mahatma Gandi

I found this recipe from the Deseret News / Recipe courtesy Marsha Dunn:


  • 1 slightly heaping cup of unpopped popcorn
  • 11/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup margarine

Pop popcorn and pour into a very large bowl. In a heavy pan, mix sugars, corn syrup and water; bring to a boil and cook to 240 degrees (use a candy thermometer). Stir in peanuts and boil for another minute or two. Remove from heat. Add baking soda, vanilla and margarine and stir. Pour over the popcorn and mix well. Pour out onto a large piece of waxed paper to cool.
