Cuban Seasoned Popcorn Balls! A simple treat made with popcorn, corn syrup, sugar, and butter then seasoned with homemade Cuban complete seasoning and a twist of lime! Not sure about you but after Sunday’s game, I’ve been ANXIOUSLY waiting to see who’s heading to the Big Game in a few weeks. In the meantime, I’m in total snack mode!

If you’re like me, you love having friends and family over to watch the Big Game with a slew of snacks. From sweet to savory, snacks should always be simple to prepare and enjoy. With that said, I’ve teamed up with Orville Redenbacher® to bring you these Cuban Seasoned Popcorn Balls!

Don’t they look deliciously easy?

They are! All you do is microwave a bag of Orville Redenbacher popcorn, combine the popped popcorn with a hot mixture of corn syrup, sugar, butter and then season with homemade Cuban complete seasoning. Once you form them into balls, you can serve with wooden skewers. It’s that easy!

The mix of seasonings also give these popcorn balls a savory twist which is what makes them so unique. The squeeze of lime is the perfect finishing touch, making these a win for your Big Game or game day watching party!

You can definitely buy Complete Seasoning in any grocery store but I prefer to make my own. If you’d like to make your own complete seasoning, you combine oregano, cumin, garlic, onion, parsley, salt, and pepper. For the full recipe, click here.

Forget the teams, I promise these Cuban Seasoned Popcorn Balls will be the real MVPs at your game day watching party!
