Rocky Road Popcorn Balls are perfect for a movie night with the family. A combination of rocky road candy and sweet popcorn rolled into a ball… You just have to take the ice cream flavor you love and transform it into something totally different and surprising.

Ingredients (16 persons)

  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 8 cups freshly popped popcorn

Place the marshmallows and butter into a large pot over medium-low heat, and melt them together, stirring often. Cook until blended and smooth, about 5 minutes, and remove from heat.
