Flaming Popcorn Balls Recipe

Flaming Popcorn Balls Recipe

Makes 20 to 30

40 cups popped popcorn (2 cups kernels)

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), cut into pieces

1/2 cup honey

1 cup packed light-brown sugar

1 fourteen-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

5 ounces marshmallows (about 20 large)

30 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted

Vegetable-oil cooking spray

1. Set popcorn aside in a bowl. Coat two baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside. Combine butter, honey, and sugar in a 4-quart saucepot over medium heat; cook, stirring with a wooden spoon. When mixture begins to boil, stop stirring, and cook until dark amber around sides of pan, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in milk. Add marshmallows; stir until melted.

2. Pour caramel over popcorn; mix with wooden spoon to coat. When cool enough to handle, after about 3 minutes, spray hands with cooking spray; shape mixture into 3-inch balls. Place on baking sheets to cool for 15 minutes.

3. Using a small spoon, drip chocolate over popcorn balls and down sides. When chocolate has cooled, store popcorn balls in a plastic container. These may be made 2 to 3 days in advance. "
