Kids in The Kitchen- Candy Corn Popcorn balls

I am back with a more halloweenish/every day recipe! Last week I had to vere off the themes in order to satisfy my tummies craving LOL! We had alot of fun making these popcorn balls, they were simple, reminded me a bit of how rice crispies taste, nice and gooey! (when they are warm)
First melt 2 tbsp butter (please supervise your children closely at the stove)
And the melt 1/2 bag of small marshamallows (stirring alot)
While the marshmallows are melting measure 4 cups of popcorn and place in large bowl.and throw in some candy corn! (thats the halloween part) But for some reason popcorn balls are sold in the stores around Halloween does anyone know why?
*I don't usually take pictures for are Kids in The Kitchen and I look a mess but Lu insisted!* This part is for the ADULT ... pour the melted marshmallows in the bowl with the popcorn.And stir ..... the shape into small balls when the popcorn is cool enough to handle
And here ya have it ... candy corn popcorn balls mmm mmm good!

Don't forget to link up with your kid friendly recipes, favorite children's cookbooks, you and the kids in the kitchen or just simple ways to get your children to eat! See you all next week!
