A couple weekends ago, after the sickness went through our house, and we spent almost all week at home, my kids were asking for treats.
I took this as a good sign. When the appetites come back, feeling better is sure to follow!
I never know what to make them, because I’m forever healthifying things, and sometimes they don’t like it. Or, I’m busy insisting to them that apples are really a suitable dessert. Ha.
This time, I decided on some healthy popcorn balls!
I made 16 balls with my recipe, and I made 4 of each flavour option. But don’t feel limited to what I made, I gotta hear what you came up with too, so please share!
3 Ingredient Popcorn Balls
- 6 cups air popped popcorn
- 1/4 cup honey
- Fleur de Sel
Place popped popcorn in large bowl and set aside. Prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.
Heat honey over medium high heat until it simmers. Allow it to simmer for a few minutes, while stirring occasionally.
Drizzle honey over popcorn and toss to coat completely. It's a little bit of work.
Use a large ice cream scoop or your hands to form into balls - if it seems too sticky, let it cool a bit more. You'll have to mash them together a bit to get them to stick. Place formed balls on prepared baking sheet to cool completely.
Sprinkle salt, cinnamon, or cayenne powder on the popcorn balls if desired! I melted 1/8 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips with a pinch of coconut oil and drizzled over top.
