    Smile Caramel popcorn and popcorn balls

    M&m's popcorn balls.

    What you'll need:
    1 9-oz. bag popped popcorn
    2 10-oz. bags marshmallows
    1 bag DOVE® Milk or Dark Chocolate Gifts
    2 tablespoons shortening
    1 bag "M&M's"® Milk Chocolate Candies for the Holidays
    What to do:

    Unwrap and place 1/2 bag of DOVE® Milk or Dark Chocolate Gifts in a mixing bowl. Place the mixing bowl over of pot of simmering water and stir the mixture as it melts. When mixture is shiny and smooth, turn off the heat.

    Melt marshmallows in sauce pan with shortening until smooth.
    Combine marshmallow with chocolate.

    Place popcorn in a large bowl, pour melted chocolate mixture over popcorn, add "M&M's"® Milk Chocolate Candies for the Holidays, form into balls and place onto waxed paper to set.

    Mixture will be very sticky, greasing hands with a bit of butter prior to forming balls will help.
    Makes 12 balls.

    Yum yum yum
    I love how they are wrapped too.

    Another tip to try is to run your hands under very cold water before forming - the mixture won't stick to your hands and you don't have the yucky butter to get off.

    Kathryn came home from school with a popcorn ball last week and was talking about how much she loved it. I'm going to have to make these with her soon.

    Default Some of my favorite popcorn recipes

    WHITE CHOCOLATE POPCORN BALLS
    (I give these as gifts)

    10 cups popped popcorn
    1 cup chopped pecans
    4 ounces white baking chocolate, coarely chopped (I've used white chocolate chips)
    1/2 cup butter
    4 cups mini marshmallows

    Combine the popcorn, pecans, and chocolate in a large bowl. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows- melt and stir until the mixture is smooth. Pout the moxture over the popcorn mixture and toss until well coated. Dampen hands and shpe the mixture into 2 1/2 inch balls. Cool completely on greased alulminum foil. Wrap each ball in cellophone or plastic wrap. Makes about 18 popcorn balls.


    MICROWAVE CARAMEL CORN

    16 C. popped corn
    1/2 c. margarine
    1/4 c. light corn syrup
    1/2 t. salt
    1 c. brown sugar
    1 t. vanilla

    Combine margarine, syrup, salt and brown sugar in an 8-cup microwavesafe bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes on High. Sitr and microwave for 3 minutes on High. Sitr after each minute. Add the vanilla; stir. Put popped corn in a brown paper grocery bag and our the caramel mixture over it. Fold down top and mocrowave on High as follows: 1 minute and shake, 1 minute and shake, 30 seconds and shake, 30 seconds and shake. Pour into large bowl. Ready to serve when cool.


    JELLO POPCORN BALLS

    1 box Jell-O
    1 c. sugar
    1 c. white syrup
    1 t. vanilla

    Mix jello, sugar and syrup. Bring to a boil. Cook about 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Pour over large pan of popcorn. Mix, then make into balls.

    I like to do this in school colors for homecoming, in holiday colors, etc.
