|Agave Popcorn Balls
Better than Cracker Jacks!!
6 cups popped corn (about ¼ cup un-popped)
2/3 cup chopped almonds
¼ cup chocolate chips (optional)
¼ cup + 2 tbs agave nectar
½ cup + 1 tbs almond butter
½ tsp salt
Mix popcorn, almonds and (optionall) chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Gently heat agave nectar, almond butter and salt in a small saucepan, over medium heat. Once the syrup starts to get light, frothy and bubbly, cook and stir constantly for another 30 seconds. Pour syrup over popcorn and mix with a wooden spoon until incorporated. Let cool completely.
When cooled, press small handfuls into balls with your fingers. These will kepp for 2-3 days, covered, at room temperature.
