Loaded Popcorn Balls

I loved coming home from school to homemade cookies, treats and even cut up fruit and veggies. My Mom was the queen at after school snacks! ┬áNow that I’m grown up and have kids of my own I try and have some sort of after school snack when they get home!

Although I usually try and stick to healthier things, sometimes it is okay to have a fun treat! These Loaded Popcorn Balls are so easy to make – almost like rice krispie treats but with Popcorn!

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 40 JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cups of popped popcorn
  • 2 cups of your favorite candy or candy bars. (ex. snickers, chocolate covered raisins, gummy bears)


  1. Melt butter in large saucepan on low heat. Add marshmallows, vanilla and salt; cook until marshmallows are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring constantly.
  2. Place popcorn in large bowl. Add marshmallow mixture; mix lightly to coat.
  3. Add a small handful of your favorite candy and mix it with a handful of popcorn. It should make about 10 (3-4 inch) balls. The trick is to lightly grease your hands before forming the popcorn. Place on sheets of waxed paper; let stand until firm.
