we LOVE rice crispy treats at our house, so much so that I try to keep the ingredients on hand at all times. I had wondered about doing something different and one day, we decided to try popcorn. it was a GREAT hit!!! This week, with Easter coming, my kids have asked if we can make them, color the marshmallow mixture with food coloring and make them look like colored eggs. I’ll let you know how it works, but for you to try it, here is the recipe we used….
2 sticks butter, melted
1 bag of marshmallows (hint::Walmart brand does NOT melt well for this…use the good ones. Save Walmart’s for roasting:))
1 cup of unpopped popcorn
food coloring, if desired
Pam, or butter
Pop popcorn–this may take 2-3 batches, depending on your popper; set aside. Melt 2 sticks of butter. Add marshmallows and food coloring, if desired. Stir until marshmallows are melted. Add popcorn and stir like a mad man, so it doesn’t get too stiff to work with. spray your hands with Pam and start making balls.
We tend to eat them quicker than we can make them, but you might have more luck.
