Yummy and so easy to make. I didn't use the M & M's as I didn't have any, but would be good with them, I'm sure. I melted the butter, brown sugar and marshmallows (used large) in the microwave. It only took a few minutes. I stirred every 30 seconds.

These turned out fantastic! was skeptical about adding the brown sugar, cause marshmallows are already sweet, but it really added candy flavor. I also melted the butter and marshmellows in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Delcous way to use up leftover marshmallows!

This is like the recipe that Martha Stewart used on her Halloween special. I loved the idea of adding the M&M's so I decided to try it. It was a horrible mess. My grandmother and I use to make popcorn balls for the trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood. Nothing against this recipe, but I preferred tradition over convienence.

I did not add the M&M's since one of my friends can't have chocolate. They were good, but not great. For me, the addition of the chocolate wouldn't have fixed that. I'm not quite sure what it lacked, but it wasn't chocolate. They were very easy to make compared to traditional popcorn balls with the cooked sugar sauce. I will try this again, possibly using microwave popcorn with the butter and salt for some extra flavor.

These were great. I took them to a work party and got many compliments. One person said they were the best popcorn balls they have ever had! I used the Kettle Corn style popcorn and peanut butter M&Ms. I let mine sit out overnight to cool and the next day I was able to put them on a plate together instead of wrapping them individually and I had no problem with them sticking together.

Made these for my son's pre-K class snack. Had a lot of fun making them. Did seem like it took forever for the marshmallows to melt on low heat, so I turned up the heat a little to speed up the process.

These are really good, just hard to eat..hahaha. I guess all popcorn balls would be though. It made exactly 15 for me just like the recipe says.

These are awesome! We have been eating these for years sans the M&M's. My family LOVES them and they are super easy. You do need a lot of butter on your hands and a big bowl to work with. Yummmmmmmmmy!
