HAPPY HALLOWEEN~ Spooky Dot Pcorn Balls

Thanks to Very Vegan Holiday, Lex & I found out these little pieces of magic crack are indeed VEGAN...so we bought several hundred boxes j/k:-D  The Halloween Dots come in three delectable flavors: Candy Corn, Blood Orange Bats, & Fruity Ghosts (3/$3 @ Walgreens).

Since they are made without oil/ fat, just toxic crap, we decided to indulge this Halloween and make big CraZy Town Pcorn balls. *"CraZy Town" is when I forget my name and start running around in circles when corn syrup is introduced into my blood stream...SCARY!

~ Pop 1 bag popcorn (salted NO OIL)
~ Combine in Saucepan: 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup water, 1/3tsp Malt Vinegar, 2 1/2 T light Corn Syrup
~ Cook: Bring ingredients to a boil while stirring.  Cover and cook over medium heat for about 3 mins. Uncover and cook, stirring slowly until syrup is thick. *To test, drop a little cooked syrup into a small bowl of very cold water.  When it forms a ball,  it's ready.  Watch syrup closely, it thickens quickly.
~ Make the Balls: Remove syrup from heat.  Pour slowly over warm popped corn and small cut dot pieces, mixing with spoon.  Super Messy, start shaping balls with your hands. 

*** The first time we made these they were perfect but last night somthing when wrong and LEX won't confess:-D

Healthy TiP: Don't eat the left over dots, make Halloween decorations instead;)  The perfect pants to carry all your vegan JUNK food! tactical pants and the link is http://tacticalpants.com.
