  • 2 envelopes of microwave popcorn popped
  • 8 cups miniature marshmallows
  • ½ cup butter
  • Neon Green Food Coloring Gel
  • cups M&M’s – Halloween colors
  • Halloween Sprinkles


  • Pop popcorn then remove any unpopped kernels. I like to pour the popcorn over a cooling rack which lets the kernels fall through.  Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  • Spray an extra-large mixing bowl with nonstick cooking spray, and add popcorn.
  • In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, melt marshmallows and butter, stirring constantly until melted.

  • When melted add in 2-3 drops of neon green food coloring and stir thoroughly. Add more coloring if needed.

  • Pour over popcorn and stir with a rubber spatula until popcorn is completely coated.

  • Add M&M’s and sprinkles, stir to distribute evenly. Spray hands with cooking spray and shape into balls- as big or little as you want them to be. If your hands start to get sticky just respray them.

  • Once formed roll in more sprinkles. Place on parchment lined baking sheets until cool and set up. You may need to go back and reshape them every few minutes until they set up completely.

  • Enjoy!
