We just love these yummy popcorn balls! What have you been snacking on lately?

Looking for a great fall time snack idea? Check out our favorite popcorn balls, we hope you like them as much as we do! They are the perfect snack to pack away for a lunch time treat. What did you pack in your child's lunch box today? Got any snack ideas you want to share? 

Popcorn Balls
• 1 C dry roasted peanuts
• 5 C of popped popcorn
• 2 tsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1 C sugar
• 1/4 C of water
• 1/2 C heavy cream
• 2 TBL unsalted softened butter
• 1 tsp vanilla
• 2 TBL of chunky peanut butter
Mix popcorn, peanuts, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl and set aside.
Put sugar and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil on medium heat. Stir in the cream and butter; continue to boil until mixture turns a dark golden brown. Take off flame and slowly stir in the vanilla and peanut butter.
Pour the carmel over popcorn and mix well. When mixture is cool enough to touch, take a handful of popcorn and mold it into a 2 inch ball (or whatever size you desire.) The balls will become firm as they cool. Wrap in wax paper and store in an air tight container. Makes roughly 10 popcorn balls.
