Ingredients

  • 10 cups popped popcorn (about 1/2 cup unpopped)
  • 2 cups pieces (1/2-inch/1 cm) graham crackers (about 15 crackers)
  • 1 bag (250 g) mini marshmallows (about 6 cups)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Topping:
  • 2 oz bittersweet chocolate finely chopped

Method

In large greased roasting pan, toss together popcorn, graham crackers and 1 cup of the marshmallows. Set aside.

In large saucepan, melt remaining marshmallows with butter over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Immediately pour over popcorn mixture; stir with greased spatula to coat.

Let cool enough to handle. With greased hands, form by 3/4 cup into balls. Place on waxed paper–lined tray; let cool.

Topping: In heatproof bowl over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate. Using fork, drizzle all over popcorn balls; refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.

Turn balls over and drizzle with remaining chocolate; refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes. (Make-ahead: Wrap individually in plastic wrap and store for up to 24 hours.)
