Ingredients

  • Base Ingredients:
  • 5 cups of popcorn, popped (equal to 1/4 cup, unpopped)
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (omit if making Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup)
  • 1 cup mini vegan marshmallows
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • Topping Options
  • Bobbing for Apples:
  • 1/2 cup dried apple slices, chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Spooky Spice:
  • 2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Pumpkin Spice & Sprinkles:
  • 2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup:
  • 3 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 3 Tbsp vegan chocolate chips
  • Corn Crispy Treats:
  • 1/4 cup mini vegan marshmallows
  • 1 tsp sea salt

Preparation

  • Prep all ingredients for the toppings of your choice.

  • Pop popcorn, add toppings, stir, then cover to keep warm.

  • In a medium saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt coconut oil. If making Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup variety, melt peanut butter instead of coconut oil.

  • Remove from heat. Add marshmallow, sea salt, and vanilla, stirring until combined. Remove from heat (this can take up to five minutes, stick with it).

  • Pour sticky mix over popcorn, grease hand lightly with coconut oil and mix with hands.

  • Mold popcorn into balls. You may need to allow them to cool slightly first.

  • Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet to cool.
