These gooey, chocolatey popcorn balls are a delicious sweet treat!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8-10
  • 1 bag Orville Redenbacher's® Ultimate Butter Microwave Popcorn, popped
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 2 TBSP Cocoa powder
  • White/vanilla candy melts/candy coating
  1. Place your large pot on the stove over medium low heat. Add the butter, melt. Once melted, add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Add in the cocoa powder and stir until well combined.
  2. Remove pot from the heat and stir in the popcorn until well-coated (be sure to remove any unpopped kernels).
  3. Transfer the mixture to a wax-paper or silicone mat lined baking sheet. Allow mixture to cool just enough that you can safely handle it (so still warm, but not hot).
  4. Coat your hands in butter or cooking spray to shape small handfuls into football shapes. Continue making small football shapes (and recoating hands as needed) until all the mixture has been used.
  5. Once you've used all the mixture, melt a small amount of white candy bark to pipe laces on to the footballs. You could also use frosting for this.
  6. Place in the refrigerator to set the white candy coating and that's it!
  7. Serve & enjoy!
