Caramel Popcorn Balls
Easy to make and really fun to serve as an "upside-down lollipop.”
Makes 10
1 large bag of popcorn
1 cup sugar
Place the popcorn in a large bowl.
Melt the sugar in a medium pan over medium-high heat.
Stir once in a while so the sugar does not burn.
Once melted, pour the caramel over the popcorn.
Using clean rubber gloves form the popcorn into balls.
(It will be hot so don't let the kids do this.)
Store in an airtight container

A cute way to serve these is to make a handle using a lollipop stick. Hot glue rick rack ribbon.
Glue to the popcorn ball with some melted sugar.


Chocolate and Orange Stars
Makes 35
1 1/4 cups butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
Preheat oven to 340F.
Beat butter and sugar until light and creamy.
Stir in cocoa, syrup and salt.
Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well between each.
Add flour and orange peel; mix well.
Cover a large baking tray with parchment paper and pour the batter on top.
Bake for about 35 minutes.
The cake is supposed to be a bit sticky.
Cool and press out stars with a cookie cutter.
Dust with a little confectioners’ sugar before serving.
