Unlike traditional popcorn balls, you don’t need to boil sugar in this recipe—so these sweet treats are super quick to pop together!


  • ½ cup (125 mL) popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) butter
  • 1 pkg (10 oz/300 g) mini marshmallows
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt


  1. Add the popcorn kernels and oil to the Electric Pop & Stir. Place the lid on top, then select the POP setting and cook until the kernels have popped and there’s about 3 seconds between pops, about 5-8 minutes.
  2. Combine the butter, marshmallows, and salt in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for about 1½–2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, or until melted.
  3. Add the popcorn (being careful not to add unpopped kernels) to the melted marshmallow mixture and toss to evenly coat.
  4. When the mixture is cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes, form the popcorn into 8–10 balls.

Cook's Tips:

Lightly oil your hands before forming the popcorn balls to keep it from sticking. Try adding some cereal, sprinkles, or a drop of food coloring to the marshmallow mixture to match a special holiday or event!
