Candy Corn Popcorn balls

Looking to make a special treat perfect for Fall? Nothing says Autumn quite like Candy corn. The chewy sweet candies added to popcorn balls make for a yummy combination. Perfect for a snack, party favour or special movie treat. The different textures along with the sweet and salty taste make them a lot of fun to eat.


Candy Corn Popcorn balls

  • 1 cup of sugar
  • ½ cup of corn syrup
  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar
  • ½ Tablespoon butter
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • 3 qts popped popcorn
  • ¾ cup candy corn


Heat first four ingredients in a saucepan to 270 on your candy thermometer and remove from heat and carefully stir in baking soda. Pour mixture over popped popcorn and toss to coat.
When the popcorn has cooled just a bit (not too long) mix in candy corn and form with buttered hands into 3 inch balls. Set aside on buttered wax paper to cool completely.

Hope you enjoy them! My kids love these so much!
