Popcorn balls made the easy way with marshmallows. I took this basic recipe and gave it a Halloween makeover.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cups popped popcorn
  • 34 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • 34 cup M&M'
  • 14 cup butter (1/2 stick)
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) bag miniature marshmallows
  • 1 (3 ounce) package Jello gelatin (orange for Halloween)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (for greasing hands)


  1. Put popcorn in the biggest bowl you have.
  2. Add pumpkin seeds and M&M's. Mix with a spoon to distribute evenly.
  3. In a separate microwaveable bowl put butter and whole bag of marshmallows together and microwave on high about 2 minuets or until marshmallows are puffed. Using potholders take bowl out of microwave (Careful! Hot!) and add dry jello to marshmallows. Stir until mixture is all the same color.
  4. Pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn mixture and quickly stir until evenly coated.
  5. Let mixture cool for a couple of minuets then grease hands with butter and form mixture into balls.
