Fishy Balls

Wow! What a cool snack! These funky popcorn balls are filled with fish shaped crackers, gummy worms, and Swedish fish for a treat that just can't be beat. Your favorite fisherman will really love these sweet and salty treats. The worms and Swedish fish have a tendency to melt, so make sure to add them at the end. When rolling the balls, make sure the heads of the worms stick out a bit.

Butter for greasing utensils and hands

7 cups popped popcorn

1 cup pretzel flavored fish shaped crackers

6 cups miniature marshmallows

6 tablespoons butter

1 cup Swedish fish

16 gummy worms

Grease a large bowl heavily with butter. Place the popcorn and fish crackers in the greased bowl. Arrange a long sheet of foil or waxed paper on your work surface to hold the popcorn balls until they dry. Combine the marshmallows and butter in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the mixture melts and becomes smooth, stirring constantly. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the popcorn mixture. Toss until coated. Add the Swedish fish and toss lightly. Using well-buttered hands, make 8 balls, adding two worms to the mixture as you roll them up. Place the balls on the foil or waxed paper to dry. Tightly wrap the balls individually in clear or colored plastic wrap. Give as soon as possible as the popcorn does stale quickly, usually within a few days.

Makes 8 popcorn balls.
