Recipe type: Holiday
Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 8
A new twist on the traditional popcorn ball!
  • Balls:
  • 8 Cups of Pain Popcorn
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 10 oz. Pack Marshmallows
  • 1Tbsp. of Oil
  • Frosting:
  • 3 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • ½ Cup Butter
  • 1 Tbsp. Milk
  • Mini Candy Canes
  • M & M's or Additional Toppings of Your Choice
  1. In a sauce pan, on low heat, melt together marshmallows and butter.
  2. Stir often.
  3. Once melted, pour in the popcorn cup by cup and stir until coated.
  4. Remove from heat, let cool for 5 min.
  5. Lather your hands up with oil ( I used Pompeian Grapseed Spray Oil and a couple of sprays worked perfect)
  6. Grap a handful of the popcorn and form a ball.
  7. Gently place a candy cane into the center. It worked better if you gently twist it in.
  8. Let them cool.
  9. To make the frosting, combine powdered sugar, butter and milk in a bowl and mix with an electric hand mixer until creamy.
  10. Now decorate your ornaments to your heart's desire!
