Wonderfully delicious crunchy globs of goodness.
Popcorn balls are typically made by:
1> popping large quantities of popcorn
and then putting it in a buttered bowl(it'll make sense in a bit)
2> then melting lots of marshmallows and a pat or two of butter, so you can
3>pour the sticky stuff over the peices of popcorn to coat them and hold them together.
4>then you butter your hands so they don't stick to the candy stuff when you
5>mix it up and smoosh the stuff together in little spheres (or any shape
for that matter)
Popcorn balls are beautifully versitile little things. If you're feeling festive
, you can add foodcoloring to the melted marshmallow goo.
But even better yet is substituting candycorns for the marshmallows.They impart a glossy orange hue and that undeniably-candycorn flavor. Magnific! I ate these meal-wise for three days until my mother took them away to be fed to the more needy.
