We are a braces- free family! I haven’t made any caramel, popcorn treats because someone in our family couldn’t eat them, they would be a braces nightmare! But those days are behind us and chewy sticky treats are here!
These Chocolate Covered Caramel Popcorn Balls are an easy treat to make and they got rave reviews from my testers! I sent them to school and work and everyone loved them!
Pop some popcorn and add melted caramel!
Stir caramel and popcorn with a spoon until all of the popcorn is coated with caramel. That caramel is hot! Don’t touch it with your fingers and taste it like I did, third degree tongue burn!
After a couple minutes, make some popcorn balls. Coat hands with Pam Cooking spray or butter and grab some caramel popcorn, shape with hands to make a ball. This recipe makes ten popcorn balls.
Place a candy stick in each popcorn ball. makes it easier to dip in chocolate.
Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish, roll popcorn balls in chocolate.
Decorate with festive sprinkles! It’s Halloween now soon I decorated with black and orange, but you can switch up the colors for any holiday!
I used Chocolate Cookie Icing to make the decorative loops. We had a great time decorating these delicious popcorn balls and couldn’t wait to eat them!
