Creatively different popcorn balls! Microwave popcorn mixed with graham cereal, pretzels and chocolate candy roll together for a treat even sweeter than the traditional favorite.

Ingredients

1
bag (3 oz) light butter microwave popcorn
2
cups Golden Grahams™ cereal
1 1/2
cups small pretzel twists
3/4
cup candy-coated chocolate pieces
1/3
cup butter or margarine
3/4
cup packed brown sugar
1/3
cup light corn syrup

Directions

  • 1 Cut 24x12-inch sheet of waxed paper; place on work surface. Pop popcorn as directed on bag. Pour popcorn into at least 8-quart bowl or large roasting pan; remove any unpopped kernels. Stir in cereal, pretzels and chocolate pieces.
  • 2 In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and corn syrup. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute. Pour brown sugar mixture evenly over popcorn mixture, stirring to coat well.
