Candy Corn Popcorn Balls aren't your typical hard-as-a-rock popcorn balls. Rather, they're held together by melted marshmallows instead of a sugar syrup, so they stay soft and chewy, and the vanilla flavor of the marshmallows blends nicely with the candy corn. They are quite sweet, but what's a Halloween candy without a little sugar buzz?
The name Candy Corn Popcorn might be a little misleading, as no candy corn was actually harmed in the making of this sweet and crunchy snack. Instead, this candied popcorn takes its inspiration from the tri-colored design of candy corn. The popcorn itself can be made with whatever flavoring extract you'd like, and is cooked until it is nice and crisp, with a satisfying candy crunch surrounding every kernel. This popcorn makes an excellent unique Halloween treat or gift. Imagine packaging it up in gift bags or jars--so cute and stylish! To really reinforce the similarity, toss a handful of candy corn in amidst the popcorn pieces.
