Recipe: Peanut-Butter Pretzel Popcorn Balls

When I think about classic, homemade Halloween treats, popcorn balls are the first thing that come to mind. I wanted to make some this year but instead of regular versions, I decided to make really over-the-top popcorn balls loaded with all kinds of delicious treats! Peanut-butter cups and pretzels have the perfect salty-sweet flavor combination that I love, and they happen to go great with popcorn. These popcorn balls are chocolatey, peanut buttery, salty, and chewy—perfect for little kids but so yummy that adults won’t be able to resist!

Peanut-Butter Pretzel Popcorn Balls

10 cups plain popped popcorn
1 cup broken pretzel pieces
8-oz bag mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (the kind that are already unwrapped)
1/4 cup butter (1/2 a stick of butter)
10-oz bag mini marshmallows

Combine the popcorn, pretzel pieces, and mini peanut butter cups in a large bowl. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until marshmallows are melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the popcorn bowl and mix until combined. Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray and divide the popcorn mixture into 12-15 equal portions. Roll into balls, packing tightly like a snowball. Set the balls aside on a plate or baking sheet until cool.
