Candy Corn Popcorn Balls

by Katie of:

12 cups plain popped popcorn
1 c. candy corn
1 c. Reese's Pieces
1/4 c. butter (1/2 stick)
4 c. miniature marshmallows
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt

Dump popcorn in very large bowl and add candies. In microwave, heat butter on high starting with 30 seconds, then check and add additional microwave time if needed. Add marshmallows and microwave an additional 2 minutes. Remove and mix until marshmallows are smooth.  Add vanilla and salt and mix well. Allow to cool a minute or two then pour over top of popcorn and candy and mix well with large spoon.  Spray hands with cooking spray or butter hands to prevent sticking. Use approximately one cup per ball and mold with hands like a snowball pressing to form popcorn ball compacting them well to stay together.  Place on sheet of wax or parchment paper to cool. Insert sticks if desired. Also cute with ribbon tied around the stick. Can wrap in plastic wrap for gifts!
