The month of March is filled with lots of Basketball games in our home.   Between the whistles blowing, shoes squeeking on the floor and the boys in my life screaming at the television I can always tell their is basketball game on.

Even though I don’t follow many of the games on television I like to know that my boys have everything they need to enjoy the games.

Skittles have always been a treat that I have always loved since I was kid,  and now its fun to see my children love them just as much as I did.  Honestly, It’s only madness if you don’t have Skittles  in your home.  So while I was watching the game with family it got me to thinking about making one of our other favorite treats along with our Skittles.  These Marshmallow Popcorn Balls with Skittles were a slam dunk in my house!    They were just what we needed to complete our game!

So when I was at Sam’s club I grabbed a 54 oz bag of our favorite Skittles!  They should be easy to find with the in-store pallet or on the candy aisle.

These will be sticky, so I used my ice cream scoop and placed on wax paper, then rolled them into balls using my hands

What are your favorite flavors of Skittles?  I always have to enjoy a red and purple together!


  1. I love how you put the marshmallows in the pan with the butter and sugar – most people microwave the marshmallows but this is SO much easier. And less messy. And these popcorn balls look amazing. #client
