We made a lot of dessert popcorn here at Two Sisters Crafting, but this is the first time we have made popcorn balls.  Popcorn balls remind me of my childhood.  There was a family on our street that always gave them out at Halloween instead of candy.  Sadly, that wouldn’t fly these days but these Halloween Candy Balls would be the perfect dessert for your Halloween Party.

Popcorn for Easter Candy Popcorn

Start with approximately 10 cups of popcorn. Make sure you get out all of the un-popped kernels.  You don’t want to bite down on one of those!  We pop our popcorn on the stove (you can find our directions on How to Make Perfect Popcorn here) but you can use air-popped or microwave.  Once you have the popcorn made, salt it liberally.  It is so nice to taste the salty with the sweet marshmallow coating.  Not quite like Kettle Corn but close.

Marshmallow Mixture for the Easter Candy Popcorn

To make the Marshmallow Mixture for the Halloween Popcorn Balls, melt 3 1/2 tablespoons of butter in a medium sauce pan.  Once the butter is melted, add 3 1/2 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted.  Turn off the heat as soon as the last marshmallow has melted.

Pour marshmallow mixture into the bowl of popcorn

Slowly pour the marshmallow mixture over the salted popcorn. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture in with the popcorn until the popcorn is mostly covered.

The amount of marshmallow mixture you want to add is really up to your own taste. The more you add, the stickier the popcorn will be so we suggest that you add it a bit at a time, stir the popcorn and give it a taste before you add more.

Mix-Ins for the Halloween Popcorn Balls

Here is the candy that we added to our Halloween Popcorn Balls.  We used a handful of yellow and orange regular M&M’s along with a pretty Candy Corn Sprinkles that we found at Michaels.

Pour M&M's into the Popcorn Mixture

Add the M&M’s to the popcorn as soon as you get finished mixing the popcorn with the Marshmallow mixture. Stir until combined.

Add sprinkles to the Popcorn Mixture

Then add the sprinkles to taste.

Create the Halloween Popcorn Balls

Mold the popcorn mixture into fairly tightly packed balls about the size of your hand.  For us, each popcorn ball equaled slightly more than a cup of popcorn and we ended up with 11 Halloween Popcorn Balls.
