Holiday Gift Guide: Homemade Popcorn Balls with Gaslamp Popcorn!

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Popcorn is part of many of our holiday traditions.  We love curling up with a great Christmas movie with a big bowl of popcorn and of course, making popcorn balls is always great fun!  This year Gaslamp Popcorn helped us celebrate!

Gaslamp Popcorn is made from quality ingredients like non-GMO corn, pure cane sugar, canola oil and sea salt.  It's naturally gluten-free  and California popped. Every flavorful variety is handmade in small batches to guarantee fresh taste in every single bite.

Check out our no-fail popcorn ball recipe:

3/4 cup light corn syrup 
1/4 cup margarine 
2 teaspoons cold water 
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar 
1/2 t salt 
1 cup marshmallows
1 bag of Gaslamp Popcorn (we used Kettle Corn)

1.  In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, margarine, cold water, confectioners' sugar and marshmallows. Heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil. 
2.  Carefully combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, coating each kernel.
3.  Grease hands with vegetable shortening (or use latex gloves sprayed with PAM) and quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools. 
4. Wrap with cellophane or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.

We also threw in some mini chocolate candies in this batch.  So tasty!

Gaslamp Popcorn is sure to be a hit this holiday season!
