Healthy Popcorn Balls

  • 10 cups of Microwave Light Popcorn
  • 1 cup of Honey
  • 1 ½ cup of Molasses
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 2 Tbsp of Butter
  • 1 cup of Cranberries, Almond slices, and/or Sunflower seeds (You can combine all of these or just use your favorite dried fruit and nuts)

1. In a large bowl mix popcorn and dried fruits and/ or nuts together.
2. Make your syrup by combining the honey, molasses, water and 1 Tbsp of your butter in a saucepan and gradually heat until the syrup gets thick.
3. Pour the hot syrup over the popcorn mixture and mix until evenly coated.
4. Then butter your hands with the rest of the butter (otherwise the popcorn will stick to your hands) and use your hands to form balls with the mixture.
5. Let the balls cool, or place in refrigerator to become hard.
6. You can wrap them in a plastic wrap and tie with a ribbon for decoration.

This recipe makes 20 balls depending on how big you make them!
