Delicious!! Added crushed candy canes and a touch of salt. Wrapped in cello they were perfect holiday treat (party favor, token gift, etc.). YUM, YUM, YUM!
Minor tweaks: I used 2 TBSP oil to cook popcorn. (BTW, this makes 4 QT so do use a 4QT pan.) I reduced to 5 TBSP butter (more than krispie treat recipe but less than this recipe) and used full 10 oz bag of regular size marshmallows (approx 40 marshmallows, fairly sure this is equivalent to minis called for in this recipe). Also added 1/3-1/2 tsp salt and 1/3-1/2 cup candy cane pieces. YUM! Candy canes, of course, were for the holiday season and salt added the salty-sweet contrast we wanted. I mixed in the largest bowl I own then shaped into balls onto wax paper. Spray or butter the bowl and your hands. This stuff is sticky!!
Secret tricks: Melt butter and marshmallows slowly on LOW heat and stir constantly so they have no chance to burn. Also, add 2 tsp milk into melted marshmallows, a tip I picked up on a rice krispie treat recipe here on allrecipes. Makes it all extra creamy. YUM!!
