  • 2 Bags Orville Redenbacher Movie Theater Popcorn
  • 1 Bag of Mini or Regular Marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup M&M’S® Milk Chocolate Candies
  • Cupcake Liners
  • Toothpicks or Cute Cupcake Sticks


  1. First you can pop your Orville Redenbacher Movie Theater Popcorn in the microwave according to the package directions. Remove any unpopped kernels.
  2. Put your popcorn into a large bowl.
  3. In a pot on the stove you will melt your butter. Once the butter is melted you can add your marshmallows. Stir the marshmallows and the butter until the marshmallows are melted.
  4. Pour the melted butter and marshmallow mixture over your popcorn and stir. Try to get the popcorn mixture well mixed.
  5. Now you will make small popcorn balls with your hands. If the mixture is too sticky you can put butter on your hands to make it easier to work with.
  6. Once you have a ball made you can add some M&M’S® Milk Chocolate Candies on the outside of the ball.
  7. Lastly put each ball inside a cute cupcake liner and used a cupcake stick so that they are easy to pick up! This will make for a sticky-free treat!
