Halloween Popcorn Balls

It’s Halloween.  The season for crisp, bright sunny afternoons, apple cider, harvest moons, costumes, jack 0’lanterns and candy!  Making popcorn balls is no mystery.  They are quick and easy to make and kids love them.

Ingredients

1/4 C. butter

3/4 C. Corn Syrup

3 C. Marshmallows

15 caramels

1/4 t. salt

1 C. Fall Holiday M&Ms

1 C. fresh candy corn

1 C. white chocolate chips

Directions

This recipe make approximately 12 good size popcorn balls.

Unless you have an enourmous bowl, you will need to use a few mixing bowls.  Pop popcorn.  Split popcorn between bowls.  Split the candy between the bowls, combined with popcorn.  Set aside.

Heat the butter, syrup, marshmallows, caramels and salt in a sauce pan over medium high heat stirring often until melted.

Pour caramel sauce over the popcorn.  Working quickly, use a rubber heat safe spatula and work in caramel sauce.  When it’s cool enough, grease your hands with a little olive oil and take a handful of the popcorn and candy and work into balls.  Set on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper to cool.  Wrap in halloween treat bags and tie with a festive ribbon.
