Candy Corn Popcorn Balls

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by LMillerRN

Just in time for Fall Festival. If kids are helping shape these treats, make sure the marshmallow mixture is cool enough for them to handle. Store the confections in an airtight container for up to three days.

I served these at a halloween party for kids age 4-8 everyone loved them including the few parents who stayed. I thought they tasted a lot like rice crispy treats. I will make them again next year.
