A recipe for Popcorn Balls from the cookbook, Cooking Class! Popped popcorn is coated in melted butter and marshmallows, then formed into balls for a fun snack.
Servings 8 Popcorn Balls
- 4 tablespoons butter plus a little more for your hands
- 1 package (10 ounces) mini marshmallows
- 7 cups popped popcorn about 1/4 cup kernels
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat.
Add the marshmallows to the pan and stir until they're completely melted. Turn off the heat.
Pour the popcorn into the pot and stir well to coat all the kernels.
When the popcorn mixture is cool enough to handle, rub a little butter on your hands, grab a handful, and gently pat it into a ball.
Set the ball on a plate and repeat with the remaining popcorn until it's all used.
Eat right away!
To save them for later, let the balls cool completely, then wrap each one in plastic wrap.
