These popcorn balls ROCK! Made them today for my son's 4th grade class. I got 21 baseball size balls using 3 regular size bags of butter flavor microwave popcorn (that's what I had onhand) and added 1 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and only 1 tsp. of water. I also used red & yellow food coloring to make them orange. Keep the popcorn warm after you pop it for easy mixing. I left the bags sealed and put the in the oven (at 275 degrees) until I had them all popped and the marshmellow goodness was melted & ready to go. Put the bags one at a time in a colander to get all of the unpopped kernals out! (they will go to the bottom, just scoop the popcorn out of the colander carefully!) I mixed it all at one time in a large stockpot and wore latex gloves sprayed with Pam to shape the balls, then just put them on a baking sheet to cool before putting them in treat bags. A huge hit! I will be making tons of these for Christmas treats for all and will make them look more festive by adding red & green m&m's, gumdrops, whatever. Super easy and so yummy. Truly this is "pocorn balls 101" so don't be afraid to give them a try! Happy Halloween! :-)
