  • 1 (2.7 oz) bag Orville Redenbacher's SmartPOP! 94% fat free butter microwave popcorn
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 4 c. miniature marshmallows
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

All you do:

  1. Prepare popcorn according to package directions. Transfer popped kernels to large heatproof bowl, being careful to remove all unpopped kernels; set aside.
  2. Place butter in medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted. Add marshmallows; microwave 90 seconds more (marshmallows will appear puffed). Add vanilla and stir well with heatproof spatula.
  3. Pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn; stir to coat. Form popcorn mixture into 2-1/2-inch balls, rolling firmly by hand.
  4. Cook's Tips
  5. Feeling festive? Orange food coloring may be added to the melted marshmallows for a Halloween look. Then press a small piece of black licorice or a candy corn into the top of each popcorn ball to mimic a stem on a pumpkin.
  6. Peanut Butter Popcorn Balls: Add 1/2 cup Hy-Vee dry roasted peanuts to reserved popcorn. Omit vanilla and replace with 1/2 cup Peter Pan creamy peanut butter. Continue with recipe as directed.
