YIELD Makes 10 to 12 balls
|16||cups plain popped popcorn (do not use buttered popcorn)|
|1||package (14 ounces) caramels|
|Pinch of salt|
|1‑2/3||cups shredded coconut|
|1||package (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips|
|10||to 12 lollipop sticks|
|Halloween sprinkles and decorations (optional)|
- Place popcorn in large bowl.
- Place caramels and butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Cook and stir until caramels and butter are melted and smooth, about 5 minutes. Stir in salt and coconut. Remove caramel mixture from heat; pour over popcorn. With large wooden spoon, mix until popcorn is evenly coated. Let cool slightly.
- Place chocolate chips in microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute; stir. Microwave on HIGH for additional 30-second intervals until chips are completely melted, stirring after each 30-second interval. Stir until smooth.
- When popcorn mixture is cool enough to handle, grease hands with butter or nonstick cooking spray. Shape popcorn mixture into baseball-sized balls; place 1 lollipop stick in each ball. Dip each popcorn ball into melted chocolate and roll in Halloween decorations, if desired. Place on waxed paper until chocolate is set.
