Till next time, Stay Blessed ..... Gueldy ( G!Partyblast)
Yield : 8-10
4 tbsp. (1/4)cup unsalted butter
10 oz. marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
12 cups buttered popcorn*
*Nonpareils or sprinkles, for decoration (optional)
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the marshmallows, vanilla and salt. Heat, stirring constantly, until the marshmallows are completely melted and the mixture is smooth
Place the popcorn in a large mixing bowl. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the top. Toss gently to combine and coat the popcorn. Allow to cool just sightly, then form into ball with well buttered hands. Place on sheets of wax paper, sprinkle with nonpareils and allow to set. Once firm, insert a stick into each popcorn ball if desired.
* I popped about 1/2 cup of kernels in the Whirly Pop and it was just the right amount for making this recipe plus a little extra for snacking :-)
*Nonpareils are a decorative confectionary of tiny balls made with sugar and starch, traditionally an opaque white but now available in many colors.
