Prep Time 10 minutes


  • 1 bag of popcorn
  • 1 spoonful vanilla frosting (per color)
  • food coloring
  • sprinkles
  • Lucky Charms marshmallows


  1. Heat the popcorn per the directions on the bag and carefully pour into a large bowl.

  2. Scoop one large spoonful of frosting and place in a microwaveable cup or bowl. (I used a glass measuring cup which made it easier to pour the icing onto the popcorn later.)

  3. Heat frosting for approximately 10-15 seconds. Mine had been in the fridge which makes it harder, so if your's is room temperature, try 5-10 seconds first. You need it just barely melted enough, so that it's more of a liquid form than creamy.

  4. Add 1-2 drops of food coloring and stir. Drizzle on top of the popcorn! (Repeat this step for each additional color. In ours, we used pink and purple.)

  5. Now decorate! You can add fun sprinkles, Lucky Charms or whatever else you want to give it some extra flair!
