Featured Recipe: Sweet and Salty Popcorn Balls

When's the last time you had a good popcorn ball? At a recent Going Local Week demonstration, Chef Alexa wowed with her Maple, Bacon & Toffee popcorn balls. You can use any flavor for this fun recipe. The fun part of making them is using your favorite puffs. You can also roll balls in mini chocolate chips, chopped nuts, coconut or anything that strikes your fancy. We like smaller popcorn balls that can be enjoyed in a couple of bites. This recipe makes about sixteen balls.

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup un-popped popcorn
6 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons butter (softened)
16 240sweet Artisan Marshmallows (We suggest using one flavor)
Sea salt, to taste


  1. Coat bottom of 4 quart or larger saucepan with vegetable oil. Heat over high heat until hot. Add popcorn. Keep in constant moving until all popcorn is popped. Remove from heat.
  2. In medium saucepan, melt 6 tablespoons of butter over low heat. Add marshmallows. Stir constantly until melted. Remove from heat.
  3. Immediately add popcorn and mix well with wooden spoon. Quickly put on food-safe gloves and coat them with softened butter. Shape popcorn mix into palm-sized balls and sprinkle with sea salt. Place individual balls on waxed paper until cooled.
  4. For storage or gifting, wrap in clear plastic wrap and tie with ribbon.
  5. Upload picture of your friends and family enjoying Sweet & Salty Popcorn Balls to Facebook.com/240sweet

  • Fleur de Sel S'mores

    Are you ready for the best s'more you will ever enjoy? We use Maldon sea salt and Chef Alexa's own caramel in the Salty Caramel Twist puff. The addition of dark chocolate and crunchy graham crackers makes an irresistable delight.

    6 puffs Salty Caramel Twist 240sweet Artisan Marshmallows
    6 miniature dark chocolate candy bars
    12 graham cracker cookies

    On a platter, place cookies upside down. Individually, place miniature candy bars on six
    of the cookies. Reserve remaining cookies to top s'mores.

    Using a skewer, roast puffs to toasting preferences. Place one roasted puff atop each candy bar and cookie stack. Place remaining cookies
    atop stacks and squish. Indulge immediately.

    Note: To make these s'mores in broiler, place half of cookes topped with candy bar and marshmallow under a hot broiler until puff is the desired shade of brown. Upon removal, immediately top stacks with remaining cookies.
