Calories 103kcal


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups mini marshmallows
  • 3 quarts plain popped popcorn
  • 1 cup marshmallow cereal (only the marshmallows!)
  • green sprinkles


  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, brown sugar, and marshmallows. Stir constantly until mixture is completely melted and smooth.
  • Place the popcorn in a large bowl, and then pour the hot mixture over the top of the popcorn. Add in the marshmallow cereal and liberally dust with green sprinkles. Use a large spatula to mix ingredients and combine everything well.
  • Grease two clean, plastic, kitchen gloves with cooking spray and begin to shape the coated popcorn into balls (about tennis ball size). I set mine inside of a muffin tin to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container when finished. Enjoy!
