Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls

3 quarts popped corn
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt

Combine brown sugar and corn syrup in a saucepan and heat to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter, vanilla and salt until well blended. Pour over popcorn, stirring until well coated. Shape into balls.


Instructions

Cut several feathers from colored papers. Poke toothpicks in and out through the bottom of each feather leaving half the toothpick sticking out. Poke the toothpick on each feather into the back of the popcorn ball making two rows of feathers.

Unwrap the peanut butter cup. Using decorator frosting, glue the widest side of the peanut butter cup to the turkey for the head. Using a toothpick, poke two dents in the top of the peanut butter cup for the eyes. Using decorator frosting glue a butterscotch chip onto peanut butter cup for beak. Using decorator frosting glue a tic tac to the bottom of the peanut butter cup for the gobbler.

Using decorator frosting glue two pretzels to the bottom of the popcorn ball for the feet.
