Perfect Popcorn Ball Tips:

1) Make microwave popcorn with loose kernels using this quick trick: pour 1/2 cup of unpopped popcorn into a large brown paper grocery bag. Roll the top of the bag halfway down, then place in microwave and cook for 2-4 minutes, or until the kernels pop.

2) Get all the too-crunchy kernels out of your popcorn before mixing in the caramel by gently lifting the popped kernels with loose fingers from one bowl to another new, large clean bowl. The kernels will fall through the popcorn and into the bottom of the first bowl. An easy way to make sure your popcorn is clean and ready to be mixed into caramel popcorn balls!

3) Keep caramel popcorn balls from drying out, immediately cover them tightly with plastic cling wrap. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. Allow to come to room temperature before serving.
