Hi, yawl. How are you doing? Remember making these back in the day? My Aunts and my Memma used to make these not only at Christmas time, but throughout the year. So delicious! I love going back to yesteryear. I may have another recipe on here that is my Mother's recipe. This is actually from AllRecipes.com
- 3/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup margarine
- 2 teaspoons cold water
- 2 5/8 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1 cup marshmallows
- 5 quarts plain popped popcorn
- In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, margarine, cold water, confectioners' sugar and marshmallows. Heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil. Carefully combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, coating each kernel.
- Grease hands with vegetable shortening and quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools. Wrap with cellophane or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
