  • 1 bag popped JOLLY TIME Blast O Butter Microwave Pop Corn, popped
  • 2 cups of 1/2 inch pieces of broken thin pretzel sticks

Line 3 large cookie sheets with waxed paper.  Pop popcorn according to package directions. Coat inside of large mixing bowl with nonstick cooking spray.  Pour popcorn into the bowl, discarding unpopped kernels.  Add broken pretzels and stir. In large microwave-safe bowl, heat caramels and water, uncovered, on HIGH for 2-1/2 to 3 minutes or until melted and smooth, stirring well every minute.  Pour over popcorn and pretzels.  Stir until well coated. Let stand 5 minutes.

Butter your hands and shape mixture into 1-1/4-inch diameter balls around whole pretzel sticks.  Press firmly and leaveg bottom half of pretzel sticks extending beyond popcorn ball to make “handles.” Place on cookie sheets and let stand until firm, about 15 minutes.  Melt chocolate chips according to package directions and let cool 2 minutes. Pour chocolate into a zip-top bag, squeeze out air and seal.  Cut small corner off bag.  While holding balls by the pretzel handles, squeeze chocolate decoratively over balls. Return to cookie sheet and let stand 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until until chocolate is set.
