Popcorn Balls!

What could be more fun than making an Easter treat the kids will love? 
Making an Easter treat the big kids will love too!  Easter Popcorn Balls

Really, they are just regular marshmallow popcorn balls.  By adding Easter M & M's and wrapping them in pastel cellophane bags makes them Easter Popcorn Balls!

And placing them in a grass filled Easter basket.
It looks like they were just dropped off by the Easter Bunny...
Would you believe I've had people tell me they have never had a marshmallow popcorn ball?  They are so good, I want you to try them for yourself. 
Pour one bag of popcorn into an greased bowl (spray with Pam)
Melt 4 tbsps. butter and 1 10 oz. bag marshmallows.
Pour the marshmallow butter mixture over the popcorn and stir until completely coated.

After it has cooled just a little, carefully mix in the M & M's. 
Shape into balls.
Fill the cellophane bags with the popcorn by folding down the sides, add the popcorn ball and brings the sides up and tie with the tulle.
Place all your popcorn balls in one basket (just don't put all your eggs in one basket)!
Let the Easter Bunny make the delivery.

    1. That used to happen to me, now I mix my marshmallow and popcorn together until they are completely coated and starting too cool. Right before forming into the balls, add the m & m's and gently mix again. Good Luck!
