3/4 C. Corn Syrup
3 C. Marshmallows
1/4 t. salt
1 C. Fall Holiday M&Ms
1 C. fresh candy corn
1 C. white chocolate chips
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.
