Recipe inspired by 'Toy Story 3.'

three-quarters cup light corn syrup
one-quarter cup margarine
2 teaspoons cold water
two 5/8 cups confectioner's sugar
1 cup marshmallows
5 quarts plain popped popcorn

In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, margarine, cold water, confectioners' sugar and marshmallows. Heat and stir until the mixture comes to a boil.

Carefully combine the hot mixture with the popcorn, coating each kernel. Grease hands with vegetable shortening and quickly shape the coated popcorn into balls before it cools. Wrap with cellophane or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
