Ingredients
  • 8 cups popped popcorn {this is approximately 5 tbsp. of unpopped kernals}
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • red food coloring
  • 3/4 -1 cup Smarties {these are similar to M&Ms}

Instructions
  1. Pop the popcorn and place it in a large bowl {I actually ended up using 2 bowls so I had more mixing space}
  2. Heat the marshmallows, butter, and salt in a large heavy saucepan over medium to low heat stirring continuously until the marshmallows are melted. Add food coloring by drops to make your desired pink color. I just wanted mine a faint pink so I only used about 5-6 drops.
  3. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the popcorn gradually, mixing it well. You can use a greased spoon to do this but I found that it was easiest to grease my hands with butter to mix. {The butter should help to protect your hands from the heat but make sure it is not too hot!} Add the candy.
  4. Shape into balls or use a heart shaped cookie cutter if you would like to do hearts. If you are using the cookie cutter, grease the inner borders and press the popcorn inside the cookie cutter until your shape is formed. Press popcorn firmly together once the cookie cutter is removed to hold.
  5. Insert sucker sticks. For mine I used the basic sucker stick and then added a paper straw over top of it to give it extra strength.
  6. Wrap each ball in plastic wrap. Makes approximately 8 {3 inch diameter} balls.
