The other day my oldest daughter and I were sitting around chatting about nothing. All of a sudden out of nowhere she said, “Did you know that they sell M&M’s® Crispy again?’ I didn’t believe her and knew she had to be mistaken, so I did a quick Google search. Oh my goodness, she was right! I could not believe that the M&M’s® Crispy were back. We decided to celebrate this return by making Bite Size M&M’s® Crispy Popcorn Balls. Not only is this a delicious and fun recipe but it is a simple recipe.

Bite Size M&M's Crispy Popcorn Balls

After we made our list of ingredients, we headed to Walmart. We found the M&M’s® Crispy in the aisle in front of the register and even spotted some snack size M&M’s® Crispy. We had to grab some of these for ‘on the go’ snacks, especially since they contain only 180 calories per serving.

As I said before, Bite Size M&M’s® Crispy Popcorn Balls are simple to make and do not have many ingredients but when you make them make sure that you have all of the ingredients out and that you do not have any expected distractions because you need to move quick.

How to Make M&M's® Crispy Popcorn Balls When you make these M&M’s® Crispy Popcorn Balls be prepared to get a little sticky! In order to prevent yourself from having to go back and forth to the sink, keep a wet towel close by so you can wipe the sticky off your hands.

One thing I love about this recipe is that you the M&M’s® Crispy give the popcorn balls a fun chocolaty crunch to them. In addition, a great thing about this recipe is that you can add as many mix-ins as you want. You can add fruit bites, sunflower seeds, and so much more.
