Marshmallow Popcorn Balls (super soft and yummy!)

Jolene P.

6 quarts popped corn
3 c. mini marshmallows
1/2 c. Karo corn syrup
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 cubes margarine
1 tsp. vanilla

Place popcorn in large bowl, then pour marshmallows over top. In a saucepan, combine corn syrup, sugar, margarine, and vanilla, and bring to a boil while stirring. Stop stirring, then let syrup cook to soft ball stage (about 5 minutes). Pour sauce over popcorn/marshmallow mixture and stir. The heat will melt the marshmallows and help to coat the popcorn. Butter hands, and form into balls, OR press popcorn mixture into greased bundt pan. Cool and eat!

**Peanuts, M&M's, Reeses pieces, and chocolate chips are all yummy additions to this recipe. You can also add food color if desired.
