POPCORN BALLS

Morning Prim Folk, well,  5 more sleeps till the big jolly Elf himself slides down the chimney,  is everybody ready?    Me, not so much, but I am going to wrap the presents  today,  put on the Christmas music and get that done.............. Yesterday  I made my annul Christmas popcorn balls, so yummy and easy peasy, that's  another reason  why I make them.  I don't do a lot of baking anymore, not like when my son was small, plus I would eat it all, no will power for sweets.    The recipe for these popcorn balls is from none other then Martha Stewart, I am a huge fan.  I really enjoyed her T.V. shows when she was just starting out, making more simple things to craft and eat.  Now, I don't even have a channel that broadcasts her show, oh well,  guess I can go her website.........I will share the recipe......................
4 Tablespoons  unsalted butter,   1 bag miniature marshmallows,     1/4 cup brown sugar,     3 quarts popped  popcorn,    1 cup candy-coated chocolate   (optional )          Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.     Melt butter in  a heavy-bottomed pot over low heat.    Add marshmallows and brown sugar, stir until melted and combined.       Remove from heat.     Add popcorn and candies, if desired, toss until well combined. With buttered hands, shape into 2 1/2 inch balls. Let harden slightly on lined baking sheet.    Enjoy,  wishing you all a wonderful day, Warm  Blessings Francine.

  10. Hello dear, sweet, Francine.... Those popcorn balls bring back memories....we used to always have one in our Christmas bag from church on Christmas Eve (mind you, not the good, homemade kind tho....ours were those tasteless things wrapped in pretty cellophane....) Sounds like and looks like you're ready for the season....It's hard to believe that just a year ago we were winding down on the Merriment Chain....Harder yet to believe is that, this year, there's not a cookie baked, a gift purchased, nor a decoration hung..... Been a rough one here in Nod.... But, something tells me Christmas will come all the same. Wishing you and your family a season of joy and blessings..... Hugs ~ Robin
