4th of July Popcorn Balls
 
Ingredients
  • 1.5 scoops of fresh hot air popcorn kernels (about 75 grams)
  • 1.5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 5 cups marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups mini red and blue M&Ms
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • Red food coloring gel
  • Blue food coloring gel
  • Prepare popcorn: Lift the kettle lid all the way to the top to adhere to the magnet and carefully pour kernels and oil into the popping kettle. CAUTION: Lid may be HOT! Lower the kettle lid.
  • Carefully close the door on the main unit and Switch ON the main power at the side.
  • Popcorn starts popping out through the lid of the popping kettle. Switch OFF when popping is complete (when there is no more popping sound from the kettle).
  • It is suggested to lift the kettle lid before pulling the switch to release popcorn. This will avoid incidence of which the lid spins with force and damage the unit. CAUTION: Kettle will be HOT!
  • This recipe should yield about 12 cups of popcorn. Once fully popped, add popcorn to a large mixing bowl.
  • Prepare popcorn balls: In a large microwave safe bowl, add in the marshmallows and 1 tablespoon of butter. Microwave in 45 second increments, stirring in between, until the marshmallows are fully melted.
  • Slowly add in the popcorn to the marshmallow mixture. For ideal mixing, use a silicone spatula.
  • Rub the remaining tablespoon of butter on a large tray and on your hands to avoid the popcorn balls from sticking. Start forming the balls to your preferred size (1.5 inch diameter makes approximately 12-16 balls).
  • Prepare toppings: Spilt the white chocolate chips into two microwave safe mugs. Microwave them in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until the chocolate begins to melt.
  • Remove from microwave and add a pea-sized amount of red food coloring gel to one mug, and blue to the other. Mix well.
  • Drizzle the popcorn balls with both red and blue chocolate sauces and sprinkle mini M&Ms overtop.
  • Place in the fridge for 10 minutes, or until the chocolate hardens.
  • Enjoy!
