Lemon Popcorn Balls
The MVP ingredient in this fun Halloween popcorn ball is our Lemon Butter Snack Spread, which flavors and helps bind the popcorn and candies along with the marshmallows. It’s like a crispy rice bar, only more complex—and more decadent.
- ¼ cup Challenge Lemon Butter Snack Spread
- 10 ounces mini marshmallows
- ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
- 12 cups popped popcorn (½ cup kernels), picked over
- ½ cup Halloween sprinkles, plus more for decorating
- ½ cup small Halloween candy
1Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
2Combine Challenge Lemon Butter Snack Spread, marshmallows and salt in a large pot over low heat. Stir until melted.
3Remove from heat; add popcorn and stir until completely coated. Let cool 2-3 minutes, then stir in sprinkles and candy.
4With buttered hands, shape and press the mixture into 3-inch balls.
5Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat until all the popcorn has been used. Insert a colorful straw into the top, if desired.
6Let popcorn balls sit for at least 1 hour to firm up. To store, wrap each popcorn ball in plastic wrap.
