Lucky Charms Popcorn Balls

Lucky Charms Popcorn Balls
Top of the morning to you!

On Friday, I bought a big box of Lucky Charms to make this recipe right in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Of course after all of the healthy organic kids’ cereals I’ve bought for Nolan (that he rarely wants to eat), he is crazy in love with Lucky Charms. I think he’s had five bowls of it within the past two days! These popcorn balls are super easy to make, and they’re so bright and colorful! I think they may be a new St. Patrick’s Day tradition :)

Ingredients:
4 Tablespoons butter (1/2 stick)
5 ounces marshmallows
3 cups air-popped popcorn
1 cup Lucky Charms marshmallows

Yield: 8 popcorn balls (Double the recipe if you want more.)


Directions:

Pop a bowl of air-popped popcorn, and set aside three cups.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter and marshmallows together over low heat. (I used large marshmallows, and that worked fine, but you may want the mini ones for an easier melt.)

When all is melted together, remove from the heat. Next, carefully mix in the popcorn.

When the popcorn is fully melted, add in the Lucky Charms marshmallows. Don’t overmix or the color will start to bleed.

Move the mixture to a sheet of parchment paper, and start forming into balls once it is cool enough to handle.

Store the popcorn balls in an airtight container.
