1/2 stick of butter, 4 Tablespoons
1 package of mini marshmallows
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed, if you are using kettle corn or caramel corn or any other sweet popcorn, do not add sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3 quarts of popped popcorn
1 cups of M &M’s
Sprinkles/Jimmies, optional
Pam for spraying on hands
I love popcorn. I love popcorn balls too. On a recent shopping trip, I found red, white and blue popcorn kernels and I had to get them. I thought what a fun way to make popcorn balls for a patriotic post for my blog. Shortly after my shopping trip, I found red, white and blue M & Ms. My recipe would be fine with regular popcorn and any color of M & M’s.
Melt butter on low. Stir in mini marshmallows and melt, stirring frequently. Once marshmallows are melted, remove from heat and stir in salt, popcorn, M&M’s, sprinkles, whatever you like. Spray hands with Pam and form into balls. Let dry on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!

Ooooooh, good idea! And easy, too. I have a feeling it’s one of those foods that once you start, you can’t stop
