When I was little I had problem with my teeth, and I loved popcorn balls but they were to hard for me to eat. So my mom started making them with marshmallows. They stay soft and chewy, plus they taste better. BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!Very addictive. My children get upset because I hide them,,,I'm a baaadd.. girl LOL
