Fall is right around the corner and so is Halloween! Ditch the Halloween candy for these 5 ingredient Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls.
One of my favorite fall treats are popcorn balls! They bring back fond memories of fall festivals and Halloween! I always loved getting popcorn balls when I went trick-or-treating. The unique Halloween candies/ treats were always my favorite. I can still remember what house would hand out the biggest candy bars, the Fun Dip, and the popcorn balls. When Pipcorn and Sprout Living asked me to create a recipe using both of their products. I immediately thought of popcorn balls. When I was younger, I loved their salty sweet crunch. As an adult, there is even more to love!
