Popcorn balls and candy corn. oh my! My kids thought I was the coolest mom when I served these treats to them after school.
The recipe made plenty and they were able to share a few with their friends.
They are quite simple to make. Next time, I will have my kiddos help me because they will get a kick mixing the popcorn and marshmallows. It’s gooey.
