Description

Crunchy, healthy, vegan popcorn balls made with peanut butter, popcorn, honey roasted peanuts and pretzels.

Ingredients

  • 10 cups Popped Popcorn, Un-popped Kernels Removed
  • ¾ cups Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • 1 cup Pretzel Sticks, Broken Up
  • ½ cups Brown Rice Syrup
  • ½ cups Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray a spatula with non-stick cooking spray; set aside. Lay out a sheet of parchment or waxed paper on your work surface as well.

In a large bowl add popcorn, peanuts and pretzels. Mix together then set aside. Note: Before adding the popcorn, make sure you have no un-popped popcorn kernels in the mix.

In a medium sized saucepan, add brown rice syrup, peanut butter, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Over medium heat, stir and bring to a boil. Keep stirring and let it boil for about two minutes. This will be about 8 minutes total heating time time.

Pour syrup mixture over popcorn and with the prepped spatula mix together until popcorn is covered. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet.

Spray your hands with cooking spray and grab a chunk of popcorn and squeeze into a ball. I made mine a little bigger than a golf ball. You must work quickly before the popcorn cools. Make sure when grabbing popcorn you grab some peanuts and pretzels, as they tend to fall to the bottom.

Set the balls on the sheet of waxed paper. Let cool completely and serve and enjoy!

To store, wrap the popcorn balls in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
