Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Well I'm awesome & forgot today was snack day for one of the boys.  So, tomorrow I'll provide a snack (juice & crackers) along with a treat for their St. Patrick's Day party.  I made green popcorn balls & they are yummy (taste like Rice Krispie bars)!  Here's the recipe:

2 bags microwave popcorn
6 Tbsp butter
5 cups mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla, if desired
Food coloring, if desired

Prepare popcorn according to directions on package.  Remove any unpopped kernels.  Spray a large bowl with cooking spray & add popcorn.  Melt butter & marshmallows together over med heat.  Add food coloring, if desired.  Pour over popcorn.  Spray hands with cooking spray & mix until well blended.  Using hands, form mixture into balls & place to wax paper until set.  Package individually & enjoy!
