Totally Poppable Popcorn Balls Recipe
Popcorn (1/2) cup kernels or one 3.5 ounce package plain microwave popcorn)
Marshmallows (1 10 oz bag)
Butter (1/4 cup)
Coconut oil (1/4 cup)
Candy of your choice (optional)
Step 1: Pop your popcorn.
If you choose to pop on the stove, add the coconut oil and 3 popcorn kernels to a large pot. Cover and cook over medium-high heat until all 3 kernels pop. Take the three kernels out of the pot and add the rest of the popcorn kernels. Cook, shaking the pot occasionally until the popping slows down. If you choose to pop the popcorn in the microwave, follow the instructions on the bag.
STEP 2: Melt the Marshmellow-y goodness mix.
To make the mix, melt your butter in a large bowl in the microwave for about a minute. Add marshmallows, and microwave for another minute. Take out and mix the mixture and then microwave for one final minute. (Three minutes total)
STEP 3: Assemble the totally poppable popcorn Balls
Fold the popcorn into your mixture and form into balls. If you’re deciding to add candy, this is where you would fold it in as well. Pro Tip: use some coconut oil to grease your hands well before forming popcorn balls – things can get pretty sticky!
We hope you and all your little Jedis enjoy!
