Carla Hall's Popcorn Balls
This Carla Hall recipe was prepared by Diane Carter at our June, 2013, meeting.
1Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. In a large stock pot, melt marshmallows and butter over medium-low heat. Once fully melted, whisk in the pudding mix until fully incorporated. Fold in the popcorn and graham cracker cereal until coated with the marshmallow mixture. Spray an ice cream scoop with non-stick spray and portion out the popcorn mixture and gently form into a ball. Place formed popcorn balls into the prepared baking sheet. Continue to form popcorn balls with the remaining mixture. Allow to set in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving. Popcorn balls can be stored in the fridge to stiffen or stored in a zip to bag onthe cournter for a softer consistency.
2Pudding mix, rather than cocoa powder, thickens the mixture and sticks better to the popcorn than cocoa.
3When forming the popcorn balls, coat your spatula or ice cream scoop with nonstick spray so that the popcorn doesn't stick to your utensil. If you don't have nonstick spray, then use butter or oil.
