Now, on to the recipe. With the holiday season finally here, the Pop Pop Shoppe shared this easy, kid-friendly reindeer popcorn ball recipe with us — a perfect treat for Christmas Eve baking.

Reindeer Popcorn Balls

(makes 6 reindeer popcorn balls)

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups hot chocolate popcorn from Pop Pop Shoppe (or regular butter popcorn)
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate or chocolate chips (if using butter popcorn)
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 12 pretzel sticks
  • 12 eyeball candies (can be found at the baking aisle in a grocery store)
  • 6 red chocolate candies
  • Plastic wrap


Directions:

  1. Place popcorn in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, heat butter, marshmallows, chocolate, stir until smooth.
  3. Toss marshmallow mixture with popcorn until well combined.
  4. Scoop 3/4 cup popcorn mixture and shape it into balls. It is best to use plastic wrap to avoid it from sticking. Repeat with remaining mixture to make 6 balls. Place on a non-stick wax paper.
  5. Insert pretzel sticks on each side as antlers, stick two eyeball candies to use as eyes and red candy as a nose. Let it cool.

The Pop Pop Shoppe has two Little Rock locations: one out west at 12800 Chenal and one in midtown at 416 S. University. For the full lineup of deas and steals, click here.
