Halloween Peanut Butter Chocolate Popcorn Balls

These “healthy” popcorn ball treats are spook-tacular. Your little goblins will love them.  So will your grown ghouls.

Ingredients:
5 cups air-popped popcorn
3 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons natural peanut butter
3 tablespoons mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions: Mix together popped corn and chocolate chips in a large bowl. Fill a smaller bowl with ice and water and set aside. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stir together honey and peanut butter until bubbling. Pour the honey peanut butter mixture over the popcorn and chocolate chips, and combine well with a spatula. Dip hands in ice water and roll popcorn into 2-inch balls (dip hands in ice water in between balls). If your popcorn ball becomes too fragile, dip it in the ice water briefly and then reshape it. Once all the balls have been rolled out, place them on a sheet of parchment paper to cool.
