MMMMMMMMM.........These are the B*E*S*T

This recipe is the best for popcorn balls. We got snowed out from having Christmas at my moms....it is postponed til January. I was suppose to bring popcorn balls. I decided to make them anyway since I was hungry for them. Here they are.....normally I make them red and green but decided for home to not color them. I decided to share the recipe with all of you. This recipe is from an old church cookbook......they have the best recipes don't they?


POPCORN BALLS

10 cups popped corn

4 marshmallows ( cut up)

2 TBSP butter or margarine

6 TBSP white corn syrup

2 cups confections sugar

3 tsp water.

Place popped corn in a bowl. In a medium sauce pan, combine sugar, syrup, butter, water and marshamallows. Bring to a full boil over medium heat stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and continue to stir until marshmallows are melted. Add food coloring if you want them colored. Pour syrup over corn; toss lightly until well coated. Let cool until easy to handle. Grease hands and shape into balls. Makes about 15 good sized balls. These are not sticky.

I usually double this recipe and then double it again........I like them a little bigger so the 2 double batches makes about 30-35 popcorn balls..
