Popcorn Balls

Okay, so I know popcorn balls aren’t cake, or cupcakes. . . . or really anything of that nature, but while I was online looking up a different recipe, I found several recipes for popcorn balls and I just couldn’t resist. . . . .

After a bit of combining and tweaking, here’s my recipe and a picture:


  • 1/2 cup un-popped popcorn kernels
  • 3 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 bag of candy corn
  • 1 bag of pretzel mm’s
  • 5 cups of mini marshmallows
  • 6 Tbs unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Using a popcorn maker*, place oil in bottom of machine and allow to heat before adding kernels.  Once kernels are added, allow to pop, and voila –  popcorn!         *If you don’t have a popcorn maker, you can use a tall pan on the stove over medium heat or even just plain microwave popcorn.
  2. Pour popcorn in large bowl and allow to cool for a few minutes.  Carefully mix in a desired amount candy corn and pretzel mm’s.
  3. Over medium heat, melt 6 Tbs butter.  Then add marshmallows and salt and melt, stirring often.
  4. Evenly pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn mixture and allow to cool for a minute or two.  Then mix well.
  5. Cut several squares of cellophane or plastic wrap and lie them on counter top surface.  Scoop desired amount of mixture onto plastic wrap and, using the plastic wrap as a barrier between the mixture and your hands, form into ball.  Continue this until you mixture is gone.

Popcorn balls can be stored in a big Ziploc bag at room temperature for several days.
