  • 3 Tb. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tb. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 Tb. malted milk powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup oil (vegetable oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil)
  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels


  1. In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, cocoa, malted milk powder and salt together. Set aside.
  2. Place the oil and popcorn kernels in a large 6-8 quart heavy-bottomed pot with a lid. Shake the pot to cover the kernels in oil. Place the lid on the pot and open the vent. If your lid doesn’t have a vent, offset the lid a little so there’s a crack in the side.
  3. Place the pot over medium heat and wait for the kernels to start popping. The moment the kernels slow down and are about to stop popping, take the popcorn off the heat, so you don’t burn the bottom, then pour the chocolate malt powder over the top and toss vigorously.
  4. Once well coated, store the popcorn in an airtight container for up to a week.

    First of all, I love that your daughter’s name is Ava, because that’s my sister’s name :) Second, I LOVE malted milk balls, so this sounds incredible! I will definitely have to try this! :)

    What an entrepreneur! No wonder it did so well–kettle corn is irresistible, and I love that you did a malt version. So fun!

    My dad loves popcorn AND malted anything. This seems like a great way to “pay” him for all those babysitting hours he’ll be racking up soon!

    Love this! I used to host lemonade stands and bake sales with my neighborhood friends when I was a kid. A popcorn stand sounds so much like something I would do & this version looks so good. I just love malted chocolate!
