Popcorn Balls

We like to make popcorn balls around Halloween and the kiddos always look forward to it. I like to make them orange like pumpkins. Raine likes to help make these. She is the perfect little helper. This is What's Cookin on Beaty's Creek today.


6 cups air popped popcorn
1 bag of marshmallows
1 stick of butter
1 t vanilla

Melt marshmallows and butter in a pan over medium heat. When melted stir in vanilla. Pour over popcorn and stir until coated. Butter up your hands because this is going to get messy. Scoop a cup of coated popcorn in your buttered hands and press like their is no tomorrow to form a ball. Store them in an air tight container.
