This was the snack that I sent home with my daycare kids for Halloween. Not super healthy, but something different then the truckloads of candy that they will be having for the next few weeks! :) Josh and I thought it was pretty tasty when we were putting them together...
(recipe found at www.foodnetwork.com)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 stick butter
2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 cups popcorn
Over medium heat, using a 4 quart pot, combine the sugar, corn syrup, butter, cocoa and salt and bring to a boil. Once the mixture is well mixed, add the popped corn. Cook and stir until popcorn is coated, approximately 2 minutes. Cool mixture and shape into 3" balls.
