Popcorn Balls

Popcorn balls are something that we have enjoyed since we were little, thanks to our popcorn-loving mom. It is only time for us to put a recipe for them on our blog! They are often overshadowed by other easy desserts, such as rice krispie treats, but in our opinion, they are one of the yummiest no-bake treats to make. Also, they are super easy and fun. They work for pretty much any season, as they can be dressed up with sprinkles, dyed marshmallow, and festive packaging. Things can often be busy around holidays like Christmas, so it’s always nice to have an easy go-to treat.

Popcorn Balls

Recipe from Annie’s Eats

Serves about 8-10

Ingredients:

4 tbsp. unsalted butter

10 0z. marshmallows

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp salt

12 cups popcorn

Sprinkles for decoration

Directions:

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the marshmallows, vanilla, and salt. Continue heating until the marshmallows are melted and everything is smooth.

Put the popcorn in a large bowl, and pour the marshmallow mixture over the top. Toss gently to coat the popcorn. If your mixture is too sticky, add a little more popcorn. Let cool for a minute or two. Butter your hands and form into balls. Place on waxed paper, and top with sprinkles. Allow to set. Enjoy!
