Latex or vinyl gloves (to protect hands from hot, sticky candy while forming balls)


1. Pop popcorn. Combine sugar, honey, Nutella, and butter in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until it boils. Cook until mixture reaches hard ball stage, 250 – 266 degrees.

2. Combine popcorn and hot Nutella mixture in a large bowl. Mix well with a spoon. Butter gloved hands well. Form popcorn balls in hands, pressing popcorn together and squeezing balls so that the popcorn sticks together.

3. Let cool completely on cookie sheet or in cupcake liners as shown.
