  • 1 bag of butter popcorn popped (2 oz bag - approx 9 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup Brach's Mini Candy Corn
  • 3/4 cup salted peanuts
  • 3/4 cup pretzels crushed
  • 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows lightly packed
  • 3 tablespoon margarine


  • Pop popcorn. Empty into a large mixing bowl. Carefully inspect and remove and seeds.
  • Add candy corn, peanuts and crushed peanuts. Mix.
  • In a saucepan, over low heat, melt together margarine and marshmallows. Stir constantly until melted and combined.
  • Pour melted marshmallows into popcorn/candy mix. Stir. Stir well until everything is evenly mixed, combined and sticky.
  • With hands (spray with nonstick cooking spray) roll & press into popcorn balls. I prefer to make them about golf ball size.
  • Drop onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Refrigerate until set. Store covered at room temp. Enjoy :)
