This week, my son is having an Army themed slumber party. We will have pizza, fruit, chips, Army cupcakes, ice cream and popcorn balls, along with lots of fun!
I’ve made this recipe before, and it is super easy! You just have to imagine rice krispie treats, but made with popcorn instead of rice krispies!
4 TBSP butter
10 oz. mini marshmallows
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
12 cups popcorn, popped
food coloring, 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. Quickly, though carefully, divide the mixture into three large bowls. Add food coloring to each mixture and stir.
Divide the popcorn and place in the mixing bowls. Stir gently to combine and coat the popcorn. Allow to cool just slightly, then form into balls with a popcorn baller or well buttered hands. Place the balls on sheets of wax paper and allow to set.
