Ingredients
  • 6 tablespoons popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1/2 cup salted roasted peanuts
  • 4 cups mini marshmallows (about 2/3 of a 10-ounce bag)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
Directions
  • Heat a large pot over medium-high heat; add the popcorn kernels and peanut oil. When the oil starts to sizzle, sprinkle the sugar over the kernels. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and shake the pot until the popping slows down, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. Spray a large bowl with cooking spray and add the popcorn, candy corn and peanuts.

  • Combine the marshmallows and butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring, until melted and smooth, about 5 minutes.

  • Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn mixture and gently toss to coat.

  • Coat your hands with cooking spray, then shape the popcorn into 3-inch balls. Let cool.
