Bourbon Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls
Continuing with the Bourbon theme, here is another recipe from a contest I had entered, which came in third due to a used "Spirits."
12 cups of popped Pop Corn
1 cup of raw sugar
1/4 cup of smooth peanut butter - Not hydrogenated 1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of light molasses
1/4 cup of bourbon
1 tablespoon of canola oil
Place popcorn in a large bowl.
Except for the bourbon, place the remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, and whisk until smooth and reaches 260 Degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and whisk in the bourbon until combined.
Pour over popcorn and toss and stir to coat all the popcorn. Scoop out about 1/2 a cup of the mixture and form into a ball compressing as you form, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and repeat until done.
