I first posted this recipe almost 3 years ago.  I can't believe how time flies!

My girls love to make these.  I think it is because they are allowed to get their hands messy in the process.

Popcorn Balls

10 to 12 cups popped popcorn
3/4 cup butter
1 (1 lb.) bag marshmallows

Pop the popcorn and place it in a very large bowl.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat and add the marshmallows.  Cook until marshmallows are gooey stirring constantly.

Pour the melted marshmallows over the bowl of popcorn and mix until the popcorn is coated.

When cooled, moisten your hands with cold water and form into balls.

Place the balls on wax paper and let set up.

Share with family and friends!

There are a lot of fun things you could add to these Popcorn Balls.  Chocolate chips, sprinkles, colored sugar, etc.

Have a great Thursday!
