    In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat.
  • 2
    Gently stir in the popcorn until fully combined. Stir in the Lucky Charms marshmallow bits, being careful not to over stir them (or the colors will bleed).
  • 3
    Once the mixture is cool enough to handle, grease your hands with cooking spray. Roll 24 balls and place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.

    These are best if eaten the same day they're made.
