       Title: POPCORN SNOWMEN
  Categories: Snacks, Holiday, Popcorn
       Yield: 6 servings
  
       4 tb Unsalted butter
       4 c  Mini marshmallows
       9 c  Popped popcorn
     1/2 c  Confectioners' sugar
       1 tb Milk
            Gumdrops, cinnamon candies;
            -fruit leather, jelly beans,
            -licorice, 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.)
