Pistachio Chewy Bite Popcorn Balls

October 20, 2014

Pistachio Bite Popcorn Balls

Halloween is almost here and you know what that means…spooky fun, costumes, family, friends, and lots of treats! In celebration of the upcoming holiday, I wanted to share these fabulous treats by Jenny Engel and Heather Goldberg of Spork Foods. They have created a delicious Pistachio Chewy Bite Popcorn Balls recipe that are easy to make and perfect for Halloween! This recipe is nutritious, gluten free, vegan, and something you will want to make all year long. These popcorn balls use Pistachio Chewy Bites from Setton Farms which have 7 grams of protein per serving and are made with agave nectar. My kids loved these, but these are fabulous for adults too!

5 cups popped popcorn
1/4 cup non-hydrogenated buttery spread (Earth Balance)
2 cups vegan marshmallows (Dandie’s brand)

1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 bag Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites, 6 pieces, roughly chopped
