Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup pecans -- toasted
6 cups popcorn -- popped
4 cups miniature marshmallows

In a heavy saucepan, put the butter, chocolate and pecans. Cook over a moderate
heat until melted, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Pour over the popped
corn and marshmallows. Stir well. Spread on a buttered cookie sheet and

which can be colored and molded into shaped cake pans. Yogurt candy coating can
also be used for a more piquant flavor.

4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 cups mini marshmallows
9 cups popped popcorn
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

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
