Crafty Recipe - Halloween Candy Popcorn Balls
by Wen Zientek-Sico

Halloween Candy Popcorn BallsThis quick and easy variation on popcorn balls is fun and really attractive. Add a pyramid of them to the holiday table, or wrap individually in plastic wrap and black and orange ribbons for take home treats. We used this non-traditional marshmallow-popcorn mixture for our popcorn balls because we love the snowy white color, and more importantly, the mixture is easier to make than traditional popcorn balls, less likely to burn little hands, and is more malleable for a longer time if your helpers are slow at forming the balls. Add they won't break your teeth either!

Halloween Candy Popcorn BallsHalloween Candy Popcorn Balls

30 marshmallows

1 1/2 tablespoons butter

10 cups popped popcorn

2 cups assorted Halloween candy

Additional butter for greasing hands

Place waxed paper on a large countertop surface or on several baking sheets. Melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave until smooth. Toss the marshmallows with the popcorn and candy until thoroughly coated. Using well buttered hands, form the popcorn and candy into small balls. You will need to regrease your hands multiple times while making the balls to prevent sticking. Place the formed balls on the waxed paper and let dry for at least two hours before eating. If it is very humid out, store in an airtight container or else the balls will absorb the moisture and get sticky.

Makes 15 popcorn balls.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
