Have you ever tried treating a bad day with food. I have. Many times. This weekend I rediscovered one of my favorite go to treats. With fall in the air (it’s getting down to the 90’s in the mornings so that counts as fall in Arizona) my mind turns to fall foods, comfort foods. One of my favorites is popcorn balls. I used to make them every year for Halloween so to me they are a fall comfort food. I love them and have the best recipe ever. Because I’m using them to cure feeling low I’m going to share my recipe with you. You can thank me later.
Pop one large bowl of plain popcorn and set aside.
Melt in a large pot one cube of butter and one pack of marshmallows stirring frequently and watched carefully so it doesn’t burn.
When the butter and marshmallows have melted together remove from heat and mix in the popcorn. You may not use all of the popcorn. The more you add the less gooey your popcorn balls will be but you want to add enough to make them workable.
When the popcorn and marshmallows are mixed well you can now form it into balls. I put butter on my hands to keep the popcorn from sticking. Take a handful of popcorn and form into a ball. Be careful though it’s hot. Place on a cookie sheet until cooled then store in an airtight container.
Go make some popcorn balls and have a great week.
