Step 1

Place 12 cups fully popped popcorn into a large mixing bowl.

Step 2

Melt butter in medium-sized sauce pan on low heat. Add marshmallows, vanilla and salt and stir until melted. Pour over popcorn and stir until evenly coated. Form cupcakes into mold and insert 6-inch skewer into each ball. Work quickly before marshmallow mixture gets stiff.

Step 3

Melt caramel candies in the microwave, stirring every 10 seconds. Once you get a smooth sauce-like consistency, dip the base of each popcorn cupcake into the caramel, then into the chopped pecans.

Step 4

Heat chocolate bars and heavy cream in the microwave, stirring every 10 seconds. Once you get a smooth texture and the chocolate is pourable, drizzle over popcorn cupcakes and decorate with sprinkles.
