Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Recipe Ingredients:

1/3 cup popping corn
2 Tablespoons oil
1/2 bag (or about 2 cups) mini marshmallows
2 Tablespoons butter
Salt, to taste
Food coloring, optional

Cooking Instructions:

Pop corn in oil. Lightly salt and set aside. Place marshmallows and butter in a medium glass bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted (careful-it's HOT).

Eat right away! Or, you can store in an airtight container for several days. Freeze them for several weeks. For holidays, stir a little food coloring into melted marshmallows.

Do not let the popped corn sit for very long before you use it - get all the ingredients ready before you start.
