I made these fun treats for my boys and am now making them for the grandkids. Great anytime of the year, but especially good at Halloween for trick-or-treaters. A combination of rocky road candy and sweet popcorn, rolled into a ball.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 8 cups freshly popped popcorn
  • ½ cup dry-roasted unsalted peanuts
  • ½ cup miniature chocolate chips

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place the marshmallows and butter into a large pot over medium-low heat, and melt them together, stirring often. Cook until blended and smooth, about 5 minutes, and remove from heat.
  2. 2 Stir in the popcorn and peanuts, and stir gently to thoroughly coat them with the marshmallow mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. 3 With greased hands, shape the mixture into 3 inch balls, and wrap each ball in plastic wrap.

Reviews

  1. Good. Quick and easy for granddaughter. Next time will add one cup of chocolate chips and melt down with the marshmellows.
  2. Just made these and they are fantastic. Super easy to throw together also. I chopped my peanuts up a little as suggested by another reviewer.
  3. My family loved this recipe! I only had big marshmallows and used 30 big marshmallows with 2 bags of microwave popcorn. I did not have peanuts so I used 1/2 cup peanut butter chips instead. It was good but I think the texture of the peanuts would have been MUCH better! Great recipe!
  4. simple and easy but i would chop the peanuts before adding them.
  5. these are sooo good and so easy to make. i used marshmallow fluff white chocolate chunks and chopped up some caramels. added the chocolate caramel and peanuts to the melted marshmallow and let them melt a bit then added the popcorn.
  6. totally amazing! I left the peanuts out and added a half a bag of chocolate chips. Delish! We're having a hard time leaving it alone until it cools.
  7. I dunno. I just wasn't that into these. I had hoped they would be better. Not a problem with the recipe we just thought they were too sweet.
  8. It's an easy good recipe for something alittle more than a regular popcorn ball. Here's a tip though, 8 cups of cooked popcorn is 1/2 cup uncooked kernels. I actually tripled the recipe, then you need to consider do I have a big enough pot.
  9. Great popcorn balls !
