Popcorn Ball Recipe

This recipe is definitely a whole family favourite. It is from Martha Stewart's Christmas, published 1989.

Popcorn Balls

4 tbsp. butter
1 10 oz. bag marshmallows
1/4 cup light brown sugar
3 quarts popped popcorn

In a large heavy pot, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and brown sugar and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
Place the popcorn in a large bowl and pour on the marshmallow mixture; toss well. Butter your hands and shape  the popcorn into balls of whatever size you desire. Set on waxed paper to dry.

I wrap each dried popcorn ball in plastic wrap and tie with coloured string! Enjoy, I know we sure do!
