POPCORN BALLS

Normally, I wouldn't post a recipe like this but I have had two friends recently talk about popcorn balls...which is a throwback for me. My mom use to make them when I was little...we would add different colors of food coloring into the marshmallow mixture and add different candies...like M&M's, Nibs and sprinkles (not the healthiest treat, I know but fun for the kids). Also instead of balls we would use a bundt cake pan to make a popcorn cake.

POPCORN BALLS
10 balls

4 Tablespoons butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 bag (10 ounce)  miniature marshmallows
12-14 cups popped popcorn
M&Ms (optional)

Note: Add more popcorn if you don't want them to be so sticky.

Melt the butter in the microwave. Add salt and 1 bag (10 ounces) mini marshmallows, microwave until melted (about 90 seconds), stirring every 30 seconds. In a large bowl, combine popped popcorn (from about 2/3 cup kernels), be careful not to mix in any un-popped kernels.

Pour melted marshmallows over popcorn mixture, and fold to combine. You will need to work quickly since the sugar in the marshmallows hardens as it cools. Rub a little butter into your hands to prevent sticking, and gently form 12 balls, each about 2 1/2 inches across; place on waxed paper. Let set until cool and firm, about 10 minutes. If you are using the bundt pan make sure you grease it well before putting the popcorn in so it doesn't stick.
