This is a fun one. And super easy too!

I was standing on line at Michaels, as I do, when a bin of popcorn ball kits caught my eye. And I thought: 1) HOW cute is that idea, and 2) I could totally make these myself.

So I did.

Popcorn Ball Kits

For each kit you will need:
12″ disposable pastry bag
1/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar wrapped in a piece of plastic wrap
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
1/4 cup sprinkles (or 4 tablespoons assorted)
1 cup mini marshmallows
small bags for the sprinkles (I used these, left over from this project)

For easy filling, place the pastry bag into a drinking glass, cuffing the top around the rim of the glass. Fill with the popcorn kernels, followed by the brown sugar. Top with the sprinkles and finish with the marshmallows. Punch a hole in the instructions, thread the ribbon through and tie up the bag.
