Throughout the generations of our family there has been a trend which will probably never fade away. The love of eating crunchy popcorn. We would eat it for movies, family scrabble games, or whenever we needed a good crunch. :-) My mom came across these crunchy popcorn balls in the magazine: eatingwell and we decided to make some with our CranHoney.
We all hope you enjoy these as much as we all did!
What you need:
1/4 cup of CranHoney
1/4 cup of Peanut Butter
1/4 cup of Craisins
1/4 cup of Dried Apples, chopped
1/4 cup of Cashews, chopped
6 cups of popped corn
How you do it:
Make 6 cups of popcorn, set aside. *make sure that the kernels that don't pop are taken out
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Fill a bowl full of ice water.
In a small bowl combine Craisins, Dried Apples, and Cashews. Set aside.
In a stovetop pan, heat up the CranHoney and Peanut Butter on medium heat. Stir constantly. Once it starts to bubble, stir for another 15 seconds.
Pour the CranHoney mixture over the 6 cups of popcorn. Make sure all the popcorn gets coated. Once coated, blend in the Craisin Mixture.
Dip you hands in the ice water and then grab a handfull of the popcorn mixture. Roll into a ball and set on parchment paper. Do this till the popcorn is gone.
You can put a stick in it to make it not so sticky while you eat or you can just eat it with your hands. :-)
I hope you enjoy this recipe!
