Holiday Popcorn Ball Recipe with Tiffany Hinton, GF Mom Certified
- 6 cups of allergen-sensitive popcorn
- 1/4 cup Beekeeper’s Naturals Honey
- 1 T butter (divided)
Melt butter into honey in a small saucepan until honey forms small bubbles. Let cook for about a minute until you get a slightly caramelized honey. Watch it carefully so it doesn’t burn. Allow to cool slightly. Then pour evenly over popcorn in a casserole dish. Mix gently.
Rub hands with some butter and grab a handful of popcorn and press together firmly but gently. Don’t move hands too much or the pieces will “break” away and have nothing sticky to “stick” to. We learned this the hard way.
Gently place balls into a cupcake liner and allow to harden into a firmer ball. Put into a treat back and tie closed to prevent popcorn from getting stale until you gift it. Because these are made with honey they won’t have that rock hard, tooth-breaking adhesion. You may find some balls want to come loosely apart, which is where the cupcake liner helps hold them together.
Enjoy within the next few days for best freshness.
