Popcorn Ball Recipes

November 30, 2007

stack of popcorn ballsTake 1 cup of light corn syrup and 1/2 cup of sugar. Bring to hard boil. Add 1 small (3 oz.) box of Jello (dry) to syrup. Mix well. Pour over 4-5 Quarts of pop corn. Mixture will be HOT. Cool slightly and grease your hands. Form balls the size you like. Wrap each one in saran wrap to keep soft.


These are so yummy everyone loves them. I have never used lemon Jello but the cherry, orange, black cherry, lime, raspberry and strawberry are wonderful. They look so pretty in a bowl on the table with all the different colors.

Each recipe makes around 18 balls depending on the size you make.

I found this:
3 Easy Steps To Making Caramel Popcorn Balls:
Step 1: Make your popcorn or you can use pre-made bagged popcorn (We recommend using gourmet mushroom popcorn from Just Poppin').


Step 2: Melt Chocoley Caramel and mix it with popcorn in a large bowl (until all of the popcorn is coated).
Step 3: Shape into balls of desired size. Set on a heavy weight dipping sheet lined tray in the refrigerator to harden.
That's it. Really, it's that easy!

To turn your popcorn ball into a ready-to-eat
Halloween Treat:
Step 1: Melt your favorite flavor of Chocoley Bada Bing Bada Boom Dipping & Enrobing Chocolate or Indulgence Ultra Couverture Dipping & Enrobing Chocolate according to the directions that came with your chocolate.
Step 2: Add black chocolate coloring oil to the chocolate and stir. Make sure that the coloring oil is not cold. If you need to, put the coloring oil in a sealed plastic bag and immerse it in hot water for a few minutes. (Black is the only color you can use with dark or milk chocolate. Other colors can only be used with white chocolate).


Step 3: Dip the popcorn ball into the chocolate and place onto heavy weight dipping sheets or a lined cookie sheet.

Step 4: Allow the chocolate to set up in the refrigerator.

Step 5: Decorate with white Chocoley Drizzle & Design Chocolate colored with orange coloring coloring oil.

Hope it works for you!
Happy Halloween!
