Best Ever Popcorn Balls

In the mood for a SpOOkY treat? Try these...



Best Ever Popcorn Balls

3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup Crisco
2 teaspoons cold water
2 5/8 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
Red and Yellow food coloring
5 qts. plain popped corn

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, Crisco, cold water, confectioners' sugar and marshmallows. Add a few drops each red and orange coloring. Heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil. Carefully combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, coating each kernel.

Drop big spoonfuls onto waxed paper. Using two sheets of waxed paper (one in each hand)quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools. Wrap with cellophane or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.

"Taste like they're coated in candy corn. No kidding!" -Me
