Kids in the Kitchen - Popcorn Ball Ice Cream Cones

We made these that I saw in a magazine a while back. Any popcorn ball recipe you have would work (colors would be cute).

Spray your mixing bowl with cooking spray. Measure 8 cups of popcorn into bowl. The recipe called for 2/3 cup slivered, toasted almonds as well. You could add all sorts of stuff to them for variety. Did you notice Little Bit in the background scooping popcorn??
Melt 4 TBS unsalted butter in a medium sauce pan. Add a bag of marshmallows and stir until melted. Add marshmallow mixture to the popcorn and mix until well coated. When it's cool enough to handle, spray hands with cooking spray (or coat with butter), Fill cones with popcorn and make a ice cream scoop looking ball on top. Cut holes in a box so the cones can cool standing up.

Cute, huh? They are fun eating. Especially if you don't like your hands to get sticky.
