Popcorn Ornament Balls Filled with Holiday Surprises

As a Cashew (offspring of a Catholic and a Jew), I am always striving for holiday neutral food. Why? Consider me an eclectic kind of gal. The more people to party with, the better. Now Hanukkah came around early this year so there will be no Christmukkah. Only national chinese food and a movie day. So my Jewish friends will have to wait  until next year for it to be a more legit Christmukkah celebration.

 

Either way, they are flecked with gold. Because no matter what walk of life, who doesn’t like gold? Dr. Evil says so.

 

Did I mention you can make these popcorn ornaments for New Years Eve too? Giddy up!

 

Holiday decorating can seem so daunting and monotonous. Rather than lugging boxes of decorations around the house, spending time with your loved ones is what we all really should be doing.

Plan a family night to make these popcorn ball ornaments. Cover them with gold or silver candy and nonpareils. You can fill them with little trinkets and confetti, to be cracked open when gifts are unwrapped.

 

Flavor with a sprinkle of Kernel Season’s seasoning, and kick your feet back while the kids get to work shaping the tastiest ornaments they’ve ever hung.

 

Ingredients

- 5 cups freshly popped popcorn (I prefer to air pop using Kernel Season’s™ Premium Popping Corn)

-3 T butter

- 3 cups mini marshmallows

- Kernel Season’s™ Popcorn Seasonings (choose your favorite flavors)

- Melted white chocolate

 

Tools

- Vegetable savers or jumbo plastic Easter eggs

-Ribbon

-Various shiny (gold or silver) candies, sprinkles, and nonpareils

- Optional: Candy, toys, and shredded paper to fill ornaments

 

Yields: About 2-3 ornaments, depending on the size of the vegetable savers

 

Begin by melting butter on low heat setting.
