Sweetened with honey instead of marshmallows and corn syrup, these almond popcorn balls are a lighter version of the traditional Halloween treat. Kids of all ages will go wild for these!
Yield: 24 popcorn balls
Active Time: 10 minutes
9 cups popped popcorn
1 cup chopped almonds
Generous 1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup unsweetened almond butter
Pinch sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Measure out popcorn and chopped almonds in a large bowl, stir, and set aside.
Place honey in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stir in almond butter, and let bubble for 1 minute. Turn off heat and stir in salt, vanilla, and cinnamon. Carefully pour hot mixture over popcorn mixture and mix to thoroughly coat. Coat hands in nonstick spray or ghee and carefully form popcorn into 2- to 3-inch balls before the mixture cools. Store, covered, for up to 1 week.
