Caramel S'Mores Popcorn Balls

This was a fun twist on popcorn. My kids liked it...give it some time too cool and it tastes better and is not so messy. I rolled some into balls and left the rest to break apart later.
John's Rating:8Recipe from: Fun Foods on a Budget

1 cup unpopped corn, popped
2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 sleeve graham crackers, broken into bite-sized pieces
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips

Pop corn; keep warm in very low oven. In heavy saucepan, combine sugar, butter, and corn syrup. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils and sugar is completely dissolved. Pour mixture over popped corn and stir to coat evenly. Allow the mixture to slightly cool (if you cool it too much it will harden be more difficult to form into balls); add crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate chips. Stir in very gently - the marshmallows and chocolate will melt, but you want to avoid spreading them too much.

Shape mixture into balls, and wrap in plastic wrap. Or let it cool and break it into bite-size pieces.
