Step 1: Make homemade microwave popcorn

Put 1/4 cup popcorn in a brown paper bag. Fold top over a few times and tape it. Place in microwave, folded side up, for 2 to 3 minutes or until there is 5 seconds between pops.

Step 2: Make coating

Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir until marshmallows melt:
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla
2-2/3 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup mini marshmallows
Set aside:
18-20 cups popped corn placed in sprayed bowl

Step 3: Putting it all together

Pour over popcorn, quickly coating popcorn. Form into balls. Store at room temperature.

Tip from Rita's kitchen: Spray everything! The bowl, the spatula and your hands so the popcorn doesn't stick.
