    Marsha D.'s Note:

    Found this recipe in the Paula Deen's Holiday Baking Magazine and wanted to keep the recipe for christmas treats and gifts. The recipe is for using the microwave but this can also be made on stove top.

      Made for P-A-R-T-Y December, 09 Event. I haven't had this much fun since my mud-pie making days. Haven't even SEEN let alone EATEN a popcorn ball since Halloween about 47 years ago. Corralled my 8 yr. old grand-daughter, and we scurried off to the kitchen for one sticky, gooey, ooo-ey good time. Sooo easy to make. So CUTE with the M&M's, too. Will definitely be making these again. Heck, I might even make some mud-pies, too. Thanks so much for the recipe, Marsha AND the good time Haley Rose and I had making them.
