Popcorn is one of my family’s favorite snacks. We make popcorn at least once a week as a late night snack. For a change of pace, I decided to make Lucky Charms Popcorn Balls for a special treat. Popcorn balls are popcorn that is coated in a sugar mixture and formed into balls. For Lucky Charms Popcorn Balls, Lucky Charms marshmallows are mixed in with the popcorn.
