Start by preparing your cereal treats: in a medium-sized pot, add 2 cups of marshmallows and butter. Let met over medium heat on the stovetop.
Once marshmallow mixture is melted, mix into a large bowl with your cereal treats. Mix well.
With the help of an ice cream scoop, shape your cereal treats into 2-inch spheres (hint: if you keep your hands wet with water, this process will be cleaner and a lot less sticky!). Chill the spheres for about an hour
In the meantime, cut your black licorice in small pieces, about 1/3 of an inch long. Cut your remaining mini marshmallows in half, width wise, so they become little discs. They will act as the center button that opens up your Pokeball. In two bowls, separate your buttercream icing and color one serving red. We prefer using gel food coloring because of its more saturated color.
Once the treats are chilled, coat half of the sphere with white icing. Place the licorice and the marshmallows discs in the center. Chill for 20 minutes.
Once chilled, ice the bottom half of the Pokeballs with your red icing. Let chill for another 20 minutes and serve/catch 'em all!
