Do you want my balls for Christmas......recipe that is
Wicked Yummy Balls
3 pkgs micro popcorn (your choice, I like butter lovers)
8 oz. cashew pieces (once again your choice if you don't like cashews)
1 lb. milk chocolate M&M's (or go nuts for your balls)
1 pkg. brickle bits (or smack the heck out of 3 Heath Bars)
1 lb pkg small marshmallows
1/2 cup salad oil
1/2 cup butter, no substitution
Melt salad oil, butter, marshmallows over low heat. Mix together the dry ingredients. Pour melted ingredients over popcorn mixture and stir thoroughly.
Now this is the part where you will, if you start too soon on the hot mix, yell more than holiday greetings to one and all. So be careful. Oil your hands, form into hand size balls. Place your balls on waxed paper lined cookie sheet to set up.
This recipe is sort of a combo of rice crispy treats, popcorn balls and oh my goddess I have no idea where they all went.
These balls, kick ass. Don't be afraid to add your favs to the recipe, nuts, candies, sprinkles, but leave out the little plastic baby from the Kings Cake at Mardi Gras.....dental bills being what they are.
