7 cups popped corn
3 cups miniature marshmallows
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt
Few drops red food color
8 to 10 lollipops
Measure popped corn into large buttered bowl. In top of double boiler over hot water, heat marshmallows, butter and salt, stirring frequently, until marshmallows melt and mixture is smooth. Stir in food color.
Pour mixture over corn in bowl; toss gently to coat. With buttered hands, quickly shape mixture around lollipops into 3 inch balls. 8-10 balls.
Small bags are handy, too, for take-home favors. Label one for each guests ahead of time so prizes, treats and favors don’t get lost.
