After a conversation about days of yore when you'd go trick or treating and get a few yummy home made treats along with the standard candy, I couldn't stop thinking about popcorn balls! Made this to cure that craving and all I have to say is YUMM-MMY!!! I cut the recipe in half for 2 of us and I'm actually glad I did since we ate nearly the whole pan last night and would have done the same with twice the amount! I used 1 bag micro butter popcorn which gave it the perfect salty/sweet combo you might not get with air popped corn, but obviously adds extra calories (pour into a bowl to pick the unpopped kernels out unless you want a trip to the dentist with a broken tooth!). 3 tb butter, and 1/2 bag of marshmallows. Added a splash of vanilla to melted mallow mix once removed from heat. Rather than shape into balls, I pressed them into a square pan and cut into bars once cooled, more out of laziness than anything else. Made this Halloween night and we barely even touched the candy we were handing out cause these were soooo good! I will make these year round as a 'olden timey days' alternative to rice crispie treats... I think I might even like this better!
