Pinworthy Pins - Patriotic Popcorn Balls

Pinworthy Pins - Patriotic Popcorn Balls

Just in time for your 4th of July holiday, we're testing out a popcorn ball recipe to see if it's Pinworthy or not.
Popcorn Lollipops
Ingredients
1-16 oz. package mini marshmallows
4 T. butter
15 cups popped popcorn 
1 package white chocolate chips
sprinkles--color of choice
sucker/popsicle sticks

Instructions
1. Place the popped popcorn in an extra large bowl, with plenty of room to stir.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat. Add the
marshmallows, and stir constantly until smooth. Pour the marshmallow
mixture over the popcorn, and use a wooden spoon to completely cover the
popcorn.
2. Let the mixture sit for about 5-10 minutes, to let the marshmallow cool--but not
harden. Coat your hands with butter, then form the popcorn mixture into balls. Place them on a piece of wax paper
that has also been rubbed with a little butter. Don't use cooking spray--it leaves a yucky taste on the popcorn.
3. Once all the popcorn balls are formed, push the popsicle/sucker sticks into the center of each ball. Melt the white
chocolate chips in a glass bowl in the microwave. Start with 30 seconds, stir, then another 15-30 seconds and stir
until smooth. Dip the top half of the popcorn balls into the white chocolate, then immediately add the sprinkles.
Refrigerate until time to serve. Makes 6-8 popcorn balls, depending on size. (and how much you eat while you're
making them ☺)
