Put 1/4 cup popcorn in a brown paper bag. Fold top over a few times and tape it. Place in microwave, folded side up, for 2 to 3 minutes or until there is 5 seconds between pops.
Step 2: Make coating
Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir until marshmallows melt: 3/4 cup light corn syrup 1/4 cup butter or margarine 2 teaspoons vanilla 2-2/3 cups confectioners' sugar 1 cup mini marshmallows Set aside: 18-20 cups popped corn placed in sprayed bowl
Step 3: Putting it all together
Pour over popcorn, quickly coating popcorn. Form into balls. Store at room temperature.
Tip from Rita's kitchen: Spray everything! The bowl, the spatula and your hands so the popcorn doesn't stick.
