Choco-Peanut Popcorn Balls Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup dark corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 Cup condensed milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 Cup peanut butter
  • 1 Cup peanut butter chips
  • 1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 Cup Butter


  • Prepare popping corn kernels according to package directions.
  • While corn kernels are popping, prepare the peanut butter mixture: Mix together brown sugar, corn syrup, unsalted butter and condensed milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until well combined and sugar has completely dissolved into a syrup. Remove from heat then add in vanilla and peanut butter.
  • Let cool until warm to touch then pour mixture over popped corn, tossing mixture well until thoroughly combined.
  • Form popcorn into large balls then set aside to chill in the refrigerator.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the dipping chocolate: Mix together all ingredients over a double boiler or in a small mixing bowl set over boiling water.
  • Dip a lollipop stick into the dipping chocolate then pierce it halfway through the chocolate balls. Use your hands to pack the popcorn into a solid ball and allow it to attach to the lollipop stick. Chill for at least 15 minutes to harden.
  • When balls are solid, dip them halfway into the dipping chocolate then set over a tray lined with greaseproof paper. Chill until chocolate sets before serving.
