A twist on the old rice krispie treats...with POPCORN!! Easy and delicious. I like to wrap in colored plastic wrap to match the season or occasion!


  1. Put the popped popcorn in a large bowl or pan; set aside.
  2. In large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter on high until butter is melted, about 30-45 seconds.
  3. Add marshmallows.
  4. Microwave on high until marshmallows look puffy, about 1 to 1-1/2 minutes.
  5. Stir to completely melt marshmallows. Add food coloring if using.
  6. Now pour melted marshmallows over the popcorn and mix carefully until the popcorn is coated.
  7. Butter your hands to protect them from the heat and shape into balls.
  8. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap until ready to eat!

This was a great recipe which I made with my neices who loved getting their hands into it and shaping the popcorn balls. I will definitely make this often as it's easy and quick and the kids loved it. I also added sprinkles to it to make it more fun and colorful.

These are simple, easy to make, and taste good. I was going to let my grandkids help me make these, but I couldn't wait. I'm glad I did them myself - they are soooo sticky to make into balls! Fun recipe. Thanks for sharing.
