Ingredients
  • 20 cups popped popcorn (1 cup unpopped)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 bag M&M'S® Brand MINIS Milk Chocolate Candies
  • 4 DOVE® Brand Miniatures Dark Chocolate
  • 4 chocolate wafer cookies
  • 1 tube white decorating frosting

Preparation
    1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Spread popcorn on 2 sheet pans and place in oven to keep warm.
    2. Combine sugar, corn syrup and salt in medium saucepan. Bring mixture to boil over medium heat and cook until sugar is dissolved and mixture becomes thick, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add butter and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
    3. Transfer popcorn to very large bowl and toss with sugar mixture until completely coated. Stir in M&M'S® Brand MINIS Milk Chocolate Candies, leaving a handful aside for decoration.
    4. With well-buttered hands, shape popcorn mixture into 3 different size balls: 2-inch, 3-inch and 5-inch.
    5. Stack popcorn balls in descending sizes, using a wooden skewer pressed through center as support. For variation, make some snowmen using three different size balls and others with only two different size balls.
    6. Use decorating frosting to attach M&:M'S® Brand MINIS Milk Chocolate Candies for scarves, buttons and faces. To make hat, stack 1 DOVE® Brand Miniatures Dark Chocolate on top of 1 chocolate wafer and attach with frosting.
