Trick Or Treat - Popcorn Balls

Popcorn Balls are the perfect snack for Halloween guests and Trick-or-Treaters.
These treats are so delicious and easy to make!

Thanks to my friend Kristin for sharing this recipe with us. 

6 Cups of hot air popcorn
1 Cup of Candy Corn
1/4 Cup Melted Butter
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
10 - oz bag of marshmallows

Cooking oil/spray

 Combine popcorn and candy corn in a large bowl.
Melt 1/4 cup of the butter in a large pan over medium heat; Stir in the salt and the marshmallows. Reduce the heat and cook for 5-7 minutes until the marshmallows melt and the mixture is smooth, stirring frequently.

Pour marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and stir well to coat. 
Spray your hands with a bit of cooking spray. 

*The mixture is quite sticky so you don't want it sticking too your hands when you are shaping them. 
Next, shape the popcorn mixture into 12 - (2 inch) balls with your hands.

The mixture can be hot - so if you are doing this with your kids allow the mixture to cool a bit before they handle the popcorn and melted butter mixture.

Simple and delicious.
Have fun and enjoy. Do you have any favorite homemade Halloween Treats?
