Popcorn Balls

A little more than 3/4 cup unpopped kernels (you want an over flowing 2 gallons popped)
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. light corn syrup
2 tsp. cold water
2 c. confectioners sugar
1 c. mini marshmallows
1/4 c. margarine
2 tsp. vanilla

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, salt, margarine, cold water, confectioners' sugar and marshmallows. Heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil, boil rapidly for 1 minute (no more). Add vanilla at the end. place about 1 gallon popcorn in a very large bowl, Carefully combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, stirring with a wooden spoon, continue adding the other gallon of popcorn coating each kernel. Lay out some sheets of waxed paper... Spray hands with Pam and quickly make 14-18 piles of popcorn on the waxed paper (for me it's both hands cupped of popcorn each) the piles will be loose at first, as soon as you have your 14-18 piles go back and reshape into tight balls. Wrap with plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
Makes 14- 18 balls
