Cooking Instructions
  • 1

    Cook popcorn in your favorite popcorn maker or buy low sodium popcorn and place in a large bowl.

  • 2

    In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the peanut butter, honey and salt. Cook the mixture for 2-3 minutes constantly stirring until it becomes liquefied. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool for a few minutes until it starts to become sticky.

  • 3

    Pour the peanut butter mixture over the popcorn and use a spoon to combine if the mixture is too hot.

    When cool enough to touch, form 8 balls with your hands or use an ice cream scoop. Give each ball a squeeze to keep them from falling apart while the mixture sets.

    Place balls on a parchment lined baking sheet.

  • 6

    Add sticks to your popcorn balls.

  • 7

    Thin your favorite no sugar added jelly out with water and drizzle over the popcorn balls. Enjoy!
