Peanut Butter Butterscotch Popcorn Balls

Peanut Butter Butterscotch Popcorn Balls 1
  • 1 1/4 cups butterscotch chips
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups marshmallows (not minis)
  • 1 (6 oz.) bag popcorn, roughly 12 cups
  • cooking spray, as needed
  1. In a large, microwaveable bowl, combine butterscotch chips, butter and peanut butter, then microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until melted and smooth.
  2. Note: using a rubber spatula sprayed lightly with cooking spray should help prevent sticking.
  3. Stir in marshmallows and return to microwave for another 30 seconds, then stir again. Repeat process until mixture is smooth and fudge-like. If using, stir in salt.
  4. Working quickly, and in batches, if necessary, add popcorn and fold into butterscotch mixture.
  5. Lightly coat your hands in cooking spray and roll popcorn into balls slightly smaller than the width of the palm of your hand.
  6. Let set for at least 20 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
