"This recipe was handed down to me by my Aunt. It makes the yummiest popcorn balls! They would be great to hand out to Trick-or-Treaters this Halloween!!!"
2-(10 ounce) packages of marshmallows (You can also use 2 large jars of marshmallow cream.)
1/4 cup butter
desired food coloring (I mixed red and yellow to make orange.)
2 bags Microwave popcorn, popped with unpopped kernels removed (*According to the package directions, each bag of microwave popcorn makes about 10 cups popped corn. I used the equivalent of air popped popcorn when I made this recipe.)
In a large saucepan, heat butter and marshmallows until melted. Add desired color and amount of food coloring and mix well. Add popped corn and stir until completely covered. *Using greased hands, form into popcorn balls and allow to cool completely. Wrap in waxed paper that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
*TIP: This is very messy, so make sure to grease your hands often to keep them from sticking to the popcorn balls. I sprayed my hands with non-stick cooking spray several times.
