These chocolate and spiced popcorn balls were so so so good. Chocolate, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla together made these balls uniquely delicious and tasty. Chocolaty, sweet, slightly spicy and the cinnamon sugar added extra crunchiness and warm taste. My palate was well satisfied, and it was an enjoyable thing to pop a few into the mouth.
