Marshmallow Popcorn Balls


I have a Whirly Pop Stovetop Popcorn maker that I just love. One day, I decided to melt marshmallow, just like I do to make Rice Krispie Treats. These only took about ten minutes to make, and they disappeared fast.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cups popcorn

Step 1

Prepare the popcorn (I use 1/2 cup popcorn kernels with 2 tablespoons coconut oil). Place the popcorn into a large bowl, and remove any un-popped kernels.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the marshmallows, vanilla and salt. Heat, stirring constantly, until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.

Shortcut: I melted all of the ingredients in a microwave (3 to 4 minutes) stirring a couple of times in between.

I like to use disposable gloves, sprayed with non-stick spray to easily form the popcorn balls.

Allow to set for at least an hour, so the popcorn balls stay stuck together. That's hard to do, as my family gets into them as fast as I can make them!
