  in Desserts, Recipes, Vegan


1/2 cup organic popcorn kernels
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup organic maple syrup
1/2 cup barley malt syrup
1 cup cold water, to prevent sticky hands

  1. Pop popcorn and place in a large bowl.
  2. Mix maple and barley malt syrups in a small sauce pan, and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low, and stir constantly for 5-6 minutes. Pour the hot syrup over the popcorn and mix thoroughly.
  3. Slightly moisten your hands with cold water and form balls by firmly packing the mixture in your hands. Be sure to moisten your hands before making each ball.
  4. Place balls in a covered container or wrap in wax paper, then freeze until the syrup hardens.
