Best Halloween Popcorn Balls Recipe 

Halloween Popcorn Balls made with small candy corn and seasonal sprinkles are a wonderful treat for Halloween!   


– 12 cups popped popcorn about ½ cup unpopped kernel – 1 cup granulated sugar – ½ cup light corn syrup – ¼ cup butter 4 tablespoons / ½ stick – ½ teaspoon salt – 1 teaspoon vanilla – ½ teaspoon baking soda – 1 cup mini candy corn divided use – 2 tablespoons Halloween sprinkles optional


Cover a big baking or roasting pan with food spray that doesn't stick. You can either add popcorn or use an air popper to pop popcorn right in the pan. 

Step 1

Put sugar, corn syrup, butter and salt in a 2-quart pot. Bring to a boil while stirring all the time over medium-low heat.   

Step 2

When it comes to a boil, keep cooking and stirring for two more minutes. The mixture will foam up.  

Step 3

Take it off the heat and slowly stir in the baking soda and vanilla. Add sugar to popcorn and mix it around to cover it well.   

Step 4

Let it cool down a bit, and then add half of the candy corn. If you want to use sprinkles, put them in a small bowl.  

Step 5

After the mixture cools, spray your hands with nonstick spray. Make 3-inch popcorn balls quickly and add candy corn to the outside.   

Step 6

Sprinkle and push balls to stick. Let the popcorn balls cool on a foil-lined baking sheet. Individually bag them in plastic.
