No. 1 –> Really stir in that honey, it takes a bit of work to get all mixed up, but it’s important to get it mixed or else it won’t stick together!

Flavour Ideas:

  • Cinnamon
  • Cayenne
  • Chocolate


  • 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 of my chocolate drizzle ones!
