How to Make Halloween Popcorn Balls

If you’ve never made popcorn balls before, they’re quite similar to Rice Krispies Treats — just swap out the cereal for popcorn. Add a few drops of orange food coloring to the mini marshmallows as you melt them, and stir to make sure the color is evenly distributed. Then fold in the popcorn and used buttered or oiled hands to form the sticky mixture into balls. Let them cool completely on wax paper and enjoy!
