CARAMEL POPCORN BALLS

2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon water
28 caramel candies
2 tablespoons butter
13 regular size marshmallows
12 cups popped popcorn
Nonstick cooking spray

Line a large baking sheet with waxed paper or parchment paper. In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, combine chocolate chips, water, and caramel candies. Cook until caramel candies are almost completely melted, 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in butter and marshmallows. Cook until mixture is melted and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Pour over popcorn; toss to coat. Coat hands with nonstick cooking spray; shape popcorn mixture into 12 (2 1/2 to 3-inch diameter) balls. Place on prepared baking sheet; insert wooden sticks, if desired. Let stand until set, 15 to 20 minutes. Makes 12 popcorn balls.
