  • 10 cups popcorn popped
  • 3 tbsp butter salted
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup M&M Candies red and green
  • 3 tbsp Christmas Confetti Sprinkles
  • 3 tbsp Candy Cane Sprinkles
  • 3 tbsp Christmas Tree Sprinkles
  • salt


  • Pop 10 cups of popcorn, salt liberally, and place in a large bowl.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium saucepan.
  • Once the butter is melted, add in 3 cups of mini marshmallows stirring until they are completely melted. Be sure to turn off the heat as soon as the last marshmallow has melted.
  • Slowly pour around ¾ of the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn in the bowl and gently fold it into the popcorn with a spatula or spoon until most of the popcorn is covered.
  • Pour the marshmallow popcorn onto a prepared cookie sheet, spreading it into a single layer with the spatula.
  • Drizzle the remaining marshmallow mixture over the popcorn.
  • Quickly sprinkle the candy and sprinkles over the popcorn while the marshmallow coating is still warm.
  • Allow the popcorn to cool before breaking into pieces and serving.
