Halloween Popcorn Balls


While it is only September, this is the time of year I start getting excited for the holidays - I blame the stores who put out decorations in August, but still! With than in mind, I've been browsing through old magazines and watching for festive recipes I can try. I started out looking for more soups and stews and anything that contains pumpkin when I came across this recipe. I figured it is simple enough to get things started, and can potentially be a perfect snack for our road trip tomorrow - so here goes nothing!

INGREDIENTS

1 bag microwave popcorn, popped
1 C candy corn
10 oz mini-marshmallows
1/4 C butter
Non-stick spray

DIRECTIONS

Mix popped popcorn and candy corn in a large bowl.
In a medium sauce pan over med-low heat, melt butter. Once melted, add marshmallows and also cook until melted and smooth, stirring often.

Pour marshmallows over popcorn and candy corn, mixing well.
Spray hands with non-stick spray. Form popcorn balls, about 2 in diameter and place on wax paper. Marshmallow mixture is EXTREMELY sticky so use palms to shape into a ball.

Store in air tight container for up to 3 days.
Enjoy!

I just made these for the college students I meet monthly with. They were a big hit and everyone took more than one! Thanks for the great recipie.
PS I think my kitchen was temporarily taken over by strings of marshmallow goo,though! A very messy project but I'm a messy cook so it could have been more me and less the popcorn balls. :-)
