These Halloween Marshmallow Pumpkin Popcorn Balls. These are fun and taste just like rice krispie treats but made with popcorn.

They're the perfect fun food or even great for a centerpiece for your Halloween table!

Popcorn always goes great at a Halloween party. These are festive and make great table decorations even at Thanksgiving and they taste darn good too! You can spruce them up with some frosting leaves or decorate them with scary faces with the kids either way a fun and easy project.

Halloween Parties and Fun Foods



I have so many ideas for Halloween Parties for fun foods.


These are just one of many fun or even scary foods I make throughout October, right up to Halloween night.


Whether it's just a get together, family fun, a party or just because they are so festive, I make these popcorn pumpkin balls every year.

Trick or Treat?



When I was growing up these were always given out by the mom's in our neighborhood.


Those days have now long since past and times have changed.


Kids have to be so careful, that is part of my childhood and as they refer to the good ole days.


Everything has to be sealed tight and checked now, I only make them for family and friends now.

Marshmallow Candy Coating



We love the marshmallow candy coating on the popcorn.


These kind of remind us of Rice Krispie Treats but made with popcorn.


I have also used this recipe and used krispies instead of popcorn.


My husband loves the popcorn the best and so do the kids.
