Candy Corn Popcorn Balls

A Pioneer Halloween – Ree Drummond gets her whole family in the Halloween spirit with a spooky spread.
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.
