    3/4 cup light corn syrup
    1/4 cup shortening
    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.

  • when I shape them I consider the age of the children also. If they are very small, make very small balls, if they are tweens, then bigger is better. Just my idea
