Snowman Popcorn Balls

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter

4 C. mini marshmallow

9 C. popped popcorn (about 1 1/3 C. unpopped)

1/2 C. Powdered sugar

1 Tbsp. milk

Gumdrops, cinnamon candies, fruit leather,

jelly beans for garnish.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the

marshmallows and cook, stirring often, until melted and syrupy, about

5 minutes.

Place the popped popcon in a large, lightly greased shallow pan. Pour

the syrup over the popcorn, tossing to coat evenly. While still warm,

form 6 balls about 5" in diameter from the coated popcorn for bottom

sections, giving the balls flat bases so the snowmen will stand. Form

6 balls about 3 1/2" in diameter for the middle sections. Then form 6

balls about 2" in diameter for the top sections. Stir the powdered

sugar and milk together until smooth. Use the icing to stack three

popcorn balls of decreasing sizes into a snowman, then attach candies

to decorate. Makes 6 snowmen.

Use fruit leather for the scarf,gumdrops for nose,jelly beans for

eyes, cinnamon candies for mouth. You can use other candies
