These popcorn balls are so easy that it will look like you slaved like Martha Stewart.
The great thing about these are you can make them plain, with kettle corn, or add in whatever candies you like. I will say I tried it with the Reese's and the chocolate melted too fast and made a big mess.
Microwave popcorn cooked according to directions
1 bag of marshmallows
1/2 stick of butter
optional: Candy of your choice
Pop your popcorn according to the directions. While the popcorn is cooling start to melt your stick of butter over low heat. Once melted add in the marshmallows and stir until nice and smooth and sticky. The smell is heavenly. Forget pumpkin spice and flannel scented candles. I'll buy stock in butter and marshmallow candles! Listen up, Bath and Body Works.
Once melted down fold in your popcorn. Fold in quickly to ensure all the popcorn gets coated.
If you wish--now is the time to fold in the candies. Remove off heat to do this.
Let the popcorn balls cool and set for at least 10 minutes. You can wrap them individually in plastic wrap but I bought these cute ghost bags!
Our trick or treat isn't until tomorrow night so I'm going to have to put them on lock down so I don't eat them all! Do you have your costume ready? Here are some last minute ideas!
