Caramel Candy Corn Popcorn Balls


The "holiday season" begins in our home in the beginning of October. The holiday parties begin the first week in October and go all the way through the new year. I feel like popcorn is good year around but is taken to a whole new level during the holidays. This popcorn mixture is good just by itself, with m&ms, pecans, almonds, and candy corn for Halloween. And when Kernel Seasons sent me a fun package I knew that their caramel seasoning was the perfect thing for these popcorn balls! Definitely took them to the next level! And speaking of different seasonings...have you ever seen all the varieties Kernel Seasons has to take popcorn {pizza, vegetables, pasta, eggs, oatmeal, and potatoes}to the next level!!! My kids had a blast with all these flavors. And well...my husband and I had a little too much fun too! And now every single time we have popcorn, which happens at least once a week, my boys go to the pantry and pick out a flavor! They are seriously so fun! Perfect for a holiday get-together, a sleep over, or just a movie night in. 

Caramel Candy Corn Popcorn Balls

10 cups popcorn, popped
1 (20 oz) bag of candy corn
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup Karo syrup
1 cup butter
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon caramel seasoning

Place popcorn in a large bowl and pour candy corn over popcorn. Grab a saucepan and bring sugar, karo, and butter to a boil. Remove from heat and add vanilla and caramel seasoning. Once combined pour mixture over popcorn and candy corn mixture. Mix well. Let sit for about 10 minutes and then enjoy or form into balls.

*If I am giving them away I wrap them individually in siran wrap*
