    I am thinking of creating a popcorn ball barwhere the guests create their own popcorn balls with available add ins such as nuts, m&ms, golden grahams, …. can I make the marshmallow mixture and keep it warm in a crock pot for my guests to use when making their own?

      I’m not sure! That sounds like a really fun idea, but I’ve never tried to keep the marshmallow mixture warm in a crock pot.

    My daughter-in-law loves anything s’mores so she sent this recipe to me today. Not sure if she expected me to make them right away or not but I love her and they sounded fairly easy. They were pretty easy but think maybe I should have rolled them all first then did the chocolate chips. The first ones are a bit melty but I’m sure they will be fine.

    Can you quantify how large is “one bag” of popcorn is? I buy my kernels bulk. Thanks!

      When I’ve measured the amount of popped popcorn in the bag, it’s been about 10-11 cups. It seems to vary a little in each bag, but I hope that at least gives you a better idea of how much you’ll need!

    Can these be made a few days ahead of time? Best way to store them?

      You could, but honestly, they taste better the first day or two. After a couple days, they start to taste a little soggy and stale. I store them flat in a gallon-sized plastic baggie.

    I had a little trouble getting the chocolate chips to stick, so I scooped out the popcorn mix into one hand and dropped on some chips with the other hand. Then formed them into balls, so the chips were in the middle. (I probably used more than one cup of chips this way.)

      One batch should make about 14 popcorn balls.
