                         -----PATTI - VDRJ67A-----
    2      quarts        Popped popcorn
      3/4  cup           Pecan halves
      1/2  cup           Candy corn
   24                    Caramels -- about 1/2 lb
    1      tablespoon    Water
    1      tablespoon    Sugar
                         Margarine
 
 Combine popcorn, nuts and candy cron in large bowl; toss to mix. Combine
caramels, water and sugar in top of double boiler. Heat over simmering water,
stirring frequently, until melted and smooth, about 20 minutes.
 Pour over popcorn mix; toss to coat evenly. When caramel is cool enough to handle
but still soft, shape mixture with buttered hands into 16 balls, about 1/2 cup
each. Place on buttered baking sheet to set.
