      Perfect popcorn balls! Came together very easily, even without a candy thermometer. I had too much popcorn, so I added a large handful of mini-marshmallows as the syrup was heating. Nice consistency, not too hard and not falling apart. You have to be careful not to ball up any un-popped kernels, it would be easy to break a tooth.
