I found this recipe on the "Food Network", courtesy of Paula Deen. Haven't tried it yet so let me know how it turns out!!
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup light corn syrup
- 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 8 cups popcorn
- Over medium heat, using a 4-quart pot, combine the sugar, corn syrup, margarine, 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-inch balls.
Turned out great! I like it that it uses cocoa powder, not chocolate. Soft and bit chewy, potential danger to teeth fillings.
This was okay. I won't be making it again, but it was worth a try!
I have the same recipe from Paula Deen!
