Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

My mom made marshmallow popcorn for my family growing up. She would make it for parties or just for fun. I made about a week ago for a baseball game, and I forgot how delicious it was! It's also so easy to make! Just make sure you have a large bowl handy!
Here is the recipe:
4 -5 quarts popped corn (3/4 to 1 cup of kernels)
1 cup butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 bag mini marshmallows
Mix marshmallows in popped corn.  Mix rest of ingredients except for vanilla in stove pan.  Bring to a boil for 3 minutes.  Add vanilla, stir.  Pour over pop corn and stir until marshmallows melt.

To get the balls to look like baseballs I used Twizzlers ropes. Then I wrapped the ball in saran wrap so they wouldn't stick together.
