Popcorn Truffles
Yield: about 4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 microwave bag of popcorn, popped
  • 1 cup roasted cashews
  • 1 3/4 cups light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup M&M's Minis

Make It

1. Place popcorn and cashews in a large bowl. In a saucepan, combine corn syrup, butter, vinegar, and salt. Bring to a boil over high heat; boil 6 minutes. Pour mixture over popcorn and mix with a large spoon to coat. Let mixture rest until cool enough to handle.

2. Lightly coat hands with vegetable cooking spray. Place a few M&M's in the palm of your hand, and combine with some popcorn mixture. Gently shape into 1-1/2-inch a ball. Repeat with remaining popcorn mixture and M&M's.
