We're celebrating St. Patrick's Day at Itty Bitty Bella too. Stop by the store wearing green on Thursday, March 17 and we'll give you 15% off one item!! (Some exceptions apply, one discount per family)
If you're looking for a fun, easy and yummy treat (besides the classic "green eggs and ham), here's a favorite of the Itty Bitty Bella girls. Marshmallows and popcorn together- who can resist?!
St. Patrick's Marshmallow Popcorn Balls12 cups Popped Popcorn
1/3 cup Butter (and a little extra to grease your hands)
10 oz. Marshmallows- large or small, it doesn't matter
4 Tbsp Lime Gelatin
Place your popped popcorn in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Make sure the mixing bowl is big enough to stir the popcorn around. You will need the room later on!
Melt the marshmallows and butter together on the stove over medium heat. If you prefer, you can melt them in a microwave-safe bowl for 1 min. Stir to completely melt the marshmallows once they are done in the microwave.
Stir the lime gelatin into the marshmallow mixture. Stir until it is mostly dissolved. (Note: the gelatin will not completely dissolve, so don't worry about granules in the mixture)
Pour the marshmallow mixture over the top of the popped popcorn and mix until evenly coated.
Grease your hands with the additional butter and shape the popcorn mixture into 3" balls.
Wrap individual popcorn balls in plastic wrap until ready to eat.
We love the idea of mixing all these different flavors and textures together into one snack- crunchy, gooey, sweet and tangy (lime!). They are great treats to pack in lunch boxes, take to neighbors or snack on after school.
