How to cook:
  1. Start by making stovetop popcorn (there won't be any unpopped kernels!) Or store-bought is totally fine. Pour into an extra large bowl.
  2. In a medium pot over medium/medium-high heat, combine corn syrup, butter, cold water, powdered sugar, and marshmallows. Heat and stir until the mixture is combined and comes to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla and salt.
  3. Carefully pour over the popcorn, and gently stir with a wooden spoon or spatula to coat thoroughly.
  4. Let cool for just a couple minutes until you can handle the mixture, then working quickly before the mixture cools too much, grease your hands (with cooking spray or butter) to easily shape the balls. Gently squeeze just enough to shape into 3 1/2-inch balls (you want them firm, but not so compacted that they're tough to eat.)
  5. Serve and enjoy!
