Popcorn Balls with Candy
Add seasonal candies to make these a festive treat.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 12 (3-inch) popcorn balls
1 package microwave popcorn, popped (about 9 to 10 cups)
1 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
1/4 cup butter OR margarine
1 package (12 ounces) white chocolate chips
3/4 cup candy coated chocolate pieces
Spray a large bowl with cooking spray. Add popcorn.
Cook corn syrup and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stirring constantly, bring to a full boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat; add white chocolate chips, stirring until melted. Pour over popcorn mixture and mix well. Stir in candies.
Let cool 2 to 3 minutes, until easy to handle. Form into balls about 3 inches in diameter using lightly greased hands. Place each ball on waxed paper.
Each ball can be wrapped individually in plastic wrap, then tied with a bit of ribbon. Popcorn balls are best when served within 1 to 2 days.
Recipe Note: Be sure to remove any unpopped kernels before starting.
