It’s October, and we’re sharing our favorite Halloween recipes! We hope you will be inspired and use some of these ideas at your next gathering.
This recipe’s “hands-on” preparation is a thrill for kids and results in a sweet and chewy combination of chopped Butterfinger, crunchy popcorn and miniature marshmallows. Easy to make and fun to decorate, Butterfinger Popcorn Balls will be a smash at your next Halloween bash.
Ingredients needed for 25 popcorn balls:
- 6 cups popped popcorn
- 9 (18.5 grams each) Nestlé Butterfinger Fun Size Candy Bars or 3 (2.1 ounces each) NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER Candy Bars, chopped
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
- Nonstick cooking spray
COMBINE popcorn and chopped Butterfinger in large bowl, as shown above.
MELT butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Stir in marshmallows. Heat, stirring constantly, until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over popcorn mixture; quickly toss to coat well.
COAT ice cream or cookie scoop (or your hands) with nonstick cooking spray. Scoop (or shape if you are using your hands) popcorn mixture into 25 1 ½-inch balls, as shown above. Place on wax paper to cool.
WRAP in decorative bags or store in airtight container.
