Best ever? popcorn balls

Erin and I made popcorn balls using my new popcorn maker and that brand of popcorn. My mom was the one that requested them, and she really liked them. I didn’t really care for the sugar-y mixture. For 1/2 of the syrup recipe we used 1 package of the Real Theater Popcorn and about 1/2 package of microwave popcorn. It made about 14-15 balls. We tried stirring in M&Ms at the end, but it didn’t really work.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls (All Recipes)

Makes 20?


  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup margarine
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • 2 5/8 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup marshmallows
  • 5 quarts plain popped popcorn


1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, margarine, cold water, confectioners’ sugar and marshmallows. Heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil. Carefully combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, coating each kernel.

2. Grease hands with vegetable shortening and quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools. Wrap with cellophane or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
