Description

These crunchy popcorn balls remind us of simpler days, when trick-or-treating meant wearing a homemade costume and receiving handmade goodies from your neighbors. Take a nostalgic bite that will satisfy your grown-up tastes with spicy crystalized ginger and tart, colorful goji berries.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup organic popcorn kernels
  • 1/2 cup Frontier Organic Crystalized Ginger, diced into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup Frontier Goji Berries
  • 1/2 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter

Directions

  1. In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, heat coconut oil until melted. Add popcorn kernels and cover with pot with lid. Heat popcorn, shaking the pot occasionally, for about 3 to 5 minutes, until popping slows and the majority of the kernels are popped. Remove from heat.
  2. Into a large bowl, pour popcorn, removing un-popped kernels. Add crystalized ginger and goji berries.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine brown rice syrup and sunflower seed butter, stirring occasionally. Continue to heat mixture for about 3 to 4 minutes, until contents are well combined and easily pourable.
  4. Pour mixture over popcorn and, using a wooden spoon or your hands, coat popcorn.
  5. Lightly wet your hands and form popcorn into 18 3-inch balls. Serve as soon as possible.
