S'mores Popcorn Balls

Yeah! I am back. This living in the boonies is so new for this city girl, and getting internet was almost impossible. I survived and ready to get back to work :) We watch too many cooking shows here, and I saw this recipe on the television show The Chew. My kids love popcorn!!!

  • 1 10.5-ounce bag Mini Marshmallows
  • 3 tablespoons Butter
  • 6 cups plain Popcorn- I just used a bag and a half of buttered microwave popcorn
  • 2 cups Graham Cracker Cereal (Golden Grahams)
  • 1 3.9-ounce package Instant Chocolate Pudding
  1. Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large stock pot, melt marshmallows and butter over medium-low heat.
  3. Once fully melted, whisk in the pudding mix until fully incorporated.
  4. Pudding mix, rather than cocoa powder, thickens the mixture and sticks better to the popcorn than cocoa.
  5. Fold in the popcorn and graham cracker cereal until coated with the marshmallow mixture.
  6. Spray an ice cream scoop with non-stick spray and portion out the popcorn mixture and gently form into a ball.
  7. When forming the popcorn balls, coat your spatula or ice cream scoop with nonstick spray so that the popcorn doesn’t stick to your utensil. If you don’t have nonstick spray, then use butter or oil.
  8. Place formed popcorn balls onto the prepared baking sheet.Continue to form popcorn balls with the remaining mixture. 
  9. Allow to set in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving.
  10. Popcorn balls can be stored in the fridge to stiffen or stored in a zip top bag on the counter for a softer consistency.
