Awesome Popcorn Balls
Ingredients
  • 8  cups  popped popcorn
  • 1 12 1/2 ounce bottle  caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 6  ounce package  dried apricots, snipped
  • 1  cup  peanuts
  •  Nonstick aluminum foil
  •  Butter
  •  Cellophane or plastic wrap
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 300F. Remove all unpopped kernels from popped popcorn. Put popcorn into a greased 17x12x2-inch baking or roasting pan. Pour ice cream topping over popcorn. Add apricots and peanuts. Stir gently to coat. Bake for 20 minutes. Stir mixture; bake 5 minutes more. Spread caramel corn on a large piece of nonstick foil to cool. Let stand for 5 minutes. While caramel corn mixture is still warm, form it into small balls with buttered hands, using about 1/4 cup of mixture for each ball. Wrap each ball in cellophane or plastic wrap.

2. To decorate the cellophane-covered popcorn balls, twist chenille stems to resemble bugs or other scary creatures. Affix plastic eyes to the chenille stems using crafts glue. Makes 16 popcorn balls.
