My son has been looking forward to the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home on Blu-ray and DVD since we first saw it in the theater. It’s all he’s been able to talk about for weeks, so I decided to make it special with some yummy Spider-Man Popcorn Balls for our viewing party.
ACT II popcorn at Walmart is the perfect movie night snack — have it plain or jazz it up with our simple recipe for Spider-Man Popcorn Balls.
I shopped online at Walmart.com with grocery pick up for our ACT II popcorn. I love the convenience of online grocery pick-up — if you haven’t tried it already, you should. !
And right now, you can get $0.75 off a 12 pack box of ACT II popcorn from Walmart with this offer.
I chose the ACT II Extreme Butter popcorn for our viewing party, but picked up some of the ACT II 94% Fat Free Butter to make the Spider-Man popcorn balls.

Did you know that popcorn is a whole-grain maize product, grown extensively in the corn belt states of the U.S.? It’s like corn-on-the-cob in appearance and cultivation, but only popcorn kernels are capable of popping.
Popcorn’s ability to pop lies in the fact that the kernels contain a small amount of water stored in a circle of soft starch inside the hard outer casing. When heated, the water expands, creating pressure within, until eventually the casing gives way and the kernels explode and pop. This allows the water to escape as steam, turning the kernels inside out.
Spider-Man Popcorn Balls
Here is what you need to make these Spider-Man popcorn balls:
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 Tbsp water
- 10 oz. bag mini marshmallows
- Red food coloring
- 1 1/2 bags ACT II popcorn
- Clear treat bags
- Permanent marker
Start by melting the butter on medium-low heat. Once it is fully melted, add water and food coloring and mix until combined. Add the package of marshmallows and cook, stirring continuously, until melted.
Pour in the popcorn and use a wooden spoon to ensure it is coated in the marshmallow mixture.
Rub butter on your hands and then shape the popcorn into balls, placing on a sheet of wax paper to cool.
While the popcorn is cooling, grab your treat bags and use a permanent marker to draw the Spider-Man: Far From Home symbol onto the front. Once the popcorn balls are ready, add to a bag and secure with curling ribbon.
