Last week I showed you how to make football-shaped popcorn balls.

Today, I’m going to show you how to make these fun ghost popcorn balls. Perfect for Halloween parties.

Ghostly Popcorn Balls #Halloween
What you need:

  • 1 bag of pre-popped popcorn
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup of white chocolate
  • 2 tbs butter
  • Good Cook Popcorn Baller (round)
  • Large candy eyes
  • Cooking/baking spray

Place the popcorn into a large bowl, making sure you have removed un-popped kernels.

Melt the mini marshmallows and butter in a large pot, stirring constantly over medium-low heat. 

Pour the melted marshmallow over the popcorn and combine well.

Spray a little cooking spray into the round popcorn baller and a little onto your hands too. Scoop a large amount of popcorn into the popcorn baller, place the lid over the top and spin the top a few times to form the perfect popcorn ball.

Wrap each popcorn ball in cling wrap while you make the others and prepare the rest of your ingredients.

Melt the white chocolate in a microwave safe bowl on 50% for 1 minute and then on full power for 15 seconds at a time.

Unwrap each popcorn ball and dip it into the white chocolate. Attach the large candy eyes and place on parchment paper until the chocolate has hardened.


Of course you do.
