PopCorn Balls





Sunday was a rainy day in our neighborhood and my daughter wanted to make something. So she looked in her cookbooks that she made in cooking class last year and came up with popcorn ball.

Pretty easy to make and only a few ingredients needed.

Chocolate Chips


Melt the butter and add 40 large marshmallows to a non stick pan over medium heat, until melted.




Add 6 cups of popped popcorn and stir with a wooden spoon. Add Sprinkles, candy or chocolate chips. and stir.


Then place butter on hands and form popcorn into balls and cool. Then eat!


My daughter’s favorite part – lick the spoon!!

What have you made with your children lately?
