 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      tbsp          Unsalted butter
    4      c             Mini marshmallows
    9      c             Popped popcorn
      1/2  c             Confectioners' sugar
    1      tbsp          Milk
                         Gumdrops, cinnamon candies -- fruit leather, jelly
                         pretzels -- for garnish.
 
 In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and
 cook, stirring often, until melted and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Place the
 popped popcorn in a large lightly greased shallow pan. Pour the syrup over the
 popcorn, tossing to coat evenly.  While still warm, form 6 balls about 5 in
 diameter from the coated popcorn for the bottom sections, giving the balls
 flat bases so the snowmen will stand. Form 6 balls about 3-1/2 in diameter
 for the middle sections. Then form 6 balls about 2 in diameter for the top
 sections. Stir in the confectioners' sugar and milk together until smooth. Use
 the icing to stack three popcorn balls of decreasing sizes into a snowman,
 then attach candies to decorate. (Gumdrops for hats, fruit leather for
 scarves, etc.)
