Candy Corn Kix Mix Popcorn Balls

These were the treats that I handed out for my daycare kids yesterday... They turned out better then I could have imagined! Super yummy and soft instead of the tooth breaking popcorn balls that you buy in the store... I love that they have the orange color to them for Halloween - Seriously, so easy and good that I have been contemplating red and green ones for Christmas already! :) Never mind the fancy packaging - you know I am more cook then crafter! I doubled this recipe and had enough for 19 popcorn balls - they may or may not all be the same size! :)

Candy Corn Kix Mix Popcorn Balls
(recipe found at

2 cups Kix cereal
4 cups cooked popcorn
1 1/2 cups candy corn
4 tablespoons butter
10/5 ounces mini marshmallows
4 tablespoons orange flavored gelatin powder

In a large bowl, combine cereal, popcorn and candy corn. In a large pot over medium low heat, melt butter. Add marshmallows and stir until thoroughly coated in melted butter. Continue to stir until marshmallows are completely melted, add gelatin and mix well. Add one mixture to the other and combine. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Coating your hands with butter, form small balls with mixture and place on wax paper to cool.
