- 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
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.
