Ingredients:
Popcorn Ingredients:

3-4 Tablespoons Barleans Butter Flavored Coconut Oil, enough to cover bottom of your pan
1/2 cup uncooked kernels of popcorn

Candy Syrup Ingredients:

1 cup of Light Corn Syrup
1 cup of sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Tablespoons butter
I was gifted a jar of Barleans Butter Flavored Coconut Oil. What a delicious and healthy way to make popcorn. The opinions expressed in this recipe are my own.
Cook popcorn in a covered pan over medium heat until corn is popped. This will yield about 16 cups of popcorn. Once corn is popped, remove from heat. Pour into a large bowl. Add candy, nuts or sprinkles and mix well. *I added one medium size bag of M&M’s.
In a heavy saucepan, attach a candy thermometer and add corn syrup, sugar, butter and water. Over medium heat boil syrup until it reaches 240 degrees (soft ball stage). Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Stir to combine.
Pour candy syrup over popcorn and stir to coat. Spray hands with non-stick cooking spray and form popcorn mixture into balls.
Candy melts can be melted and popcorn balls can be dipped in melting chocolate too. Decorating is up to your imagination. I melted one bag of orange candy melts and dipped half of the popcorn balls. These popcorn balls were as much fun to make as they were to eat.
