Print Recipe


  • 5 ½ cups miniature marshmallows
  • 4 Tbsp margarine or butter
  • 5 cups popped Newman’s Own® Natural Flavor or 94% Fat Free Microwave Popcorn
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 cup peanut butter flavored candy pieces
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 10 5oz. wax-coated cold drink cups
  • 10 wooden ice cream or craft sticks



Coat a large bowl with nonstick cooking spray. In a 4-quart saucepan, heat the marshmallows and margarine over low heat until melted.


Put the popcorn in the greased bowl and pour the melted marshmallow mixture over it. Stir well to coat all the popcorn. Stir in the peanuts, peanut butter flavored candy pieces, and the chocolate chips. Press the mixture into the 5 oz. cold drink cups, filling them about ¾ full.


Place a wooden stick in the center of each, like a lollipop stick. Set the pops aside to cool, about 5 minutes. To remove the pops, press on the bottoms of the cups.
