Crunchy, sticky, sweet...this recipe for Caramel Apple Popcorn Balls has got it all! It's sure to please everyone at your Halloween party, from the gourmands to the sugar-happy kids!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (3.5-ounce) bag plain or butter-flavored microwave popcorn
  • 2 cups apple-cinnamon-flavored cereal rings
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apples
  • 1 (14-ounce) package caramels, about 48, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 non-toxic wooden craft sticks
What To Do:
  1. Pop popcorn according to package directions. Carefully open bag and pour 6 cups popcorn into a large bowl; discard unpopped kernels. Enjoy remaining popcorn separately. Add cereal and dried apples to bowl with popcorn.
     
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave the caramels, water and butter, uncovered, on HIGH (100% power) for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes, or until melted and smooth, stirring every minute. Mix in the cinnamon then pour over the popcorn mixture; stir until evenly coated. Let cool for 5 minutes.
     
  3. With lightly buttered hands, shape mixture into balls around each craft stick. Place on lightly buttered wax paper to set and cool.
