Earlier this summer I made the Smore's Cookies, these were a huge hit with my husband. Those are now long gone and he needed something sweet. I could have just made the Smore's Cookies, which he would have preferred, until he tasted this. These popcorn balls are SO easy to make. They were ready in 10 minutes, maybe less. Another positive, it makes a TON. These are perfect for you moms who are needing to make something to take for your children's school, get-togethers, etc. It is perfect for car rides, movies, and basically any other time you would need a quick snack!

1 cup of Golden Brown Sugar
1/2 cup of Butter
1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda
1/2 cup of Corn Syrup
10 cups of Freshly Popped Popcorn, about 1.5 regular-size bags
1 package of Mini-Marshmallows, 10 oz
2 Cups of Graham Crackers, barely crushed, still in bite-size pieces
1 Cup of Chocolate Chips, semi-sweet
First, combine the butter, brown sugar, and corn syrup in a saucepan over high heat. Let this cook for 5 minutes.
Next, remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the baking soda.
Now, mix the chocolate chips and marshmallows into the popcorn mix.
Finally, drizzle the mixture over the popcorn mix. Use a wooden spoon to stir it around and get everything mixed!
You can now form the popcorn into small balls and place in cupcake holders or just put in a big Ziplock bag and enjoy from there!
Yes, it was that easy.
