One step better than plain ol' popcorn balls – just in time for St. Patrick's Day, too.
SO, are you feeling kinda lucky?
Well, you should be – because I am about to tell you about some majorly fun and delicious St. Patrick’s day treats that are perfect for any party. Because you're never too old for a treat like this!
Everyone's had crispy treats at some point. For me, they were a staple growing up and appeared during all the holidays because my mom would make them red, orange, green or whatever color fit that holiday. We always loved them.
Well, these popcorn balls are just like those easy crispy treats, just subbing in popcorn and the marshmallow bits from the box of Lucky Charms™ cereal. See why you should feel lucky today!
All right, grab your ingredients.
Notice that you'll want to separate out the marshmallow bits from the Lucky Charms™ cereal, like this.
In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
Gently stir in the popcorn until it's fully combined with the marshmallow mixture.
Then stir in the Lucky Charms™ marshmallow bits, being careful not to over stir them or the colors will bleed.
Your sticky popcorn mixture should look like this.
Once the mixture is cool enough to handle, grease your hands with cooking spray. Roll out about 24 balls and place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Let cool completely and then store in an airtight container.
So cute. So perfect for party snacks!
These are best if eaten the same day as they're made so, you know... go right ahead!
