Allow mixture to cool just until it’s bearable to touch. You don’t want it to set too much or you won’t be able to form it into balls. While it’s still nice and warm, rub butter all over your hands, grab a big handful of mixture, and pack it together to form a ball. Push a pretzel into the top for the stem. Press a candy leaf next to the pretzel stem.*If you want more coverage of the popcorn, just 1 1/2 times the recipe above.
