Pretty Pink Pop{corn}

It's Friday!! Which means DVD's, friends, family, eats and lots of weekend treats! This is, I think, one of the quickest treats that you will ever make. That's if you have a microwave (or a stove if you prefer stove popcorn), but remember, I'm trying to make it even quicker!
This is a perfect girly birthday party nibble, kitchen tea treat, DVD night sweet snack or makes for a very pretty popcorn cake pop - just add a pop stick. Or you can even package it and make a homemade edible gift. So, let the sticky-fun start! This recipe makes about 14-16 medium sized Pretty Pink Pop{corn} pops/balls. - also, I just had to share the very pretty plum tree blossoms outside my kitchen!
This is what you need:
45 Pink/White Marshmallows
120g Stork Bake
1 packet Ster Kinekor unflavoured popcorn.
Mixing bowl
Microwave - or you can replace it by making your own popcorn, about 5 cups popped popcorn
Grease the mixing bowl and set aside. Pop the Ster Kinekor unflavoured {light} popcorn, available at Pick n Pay, in the microwave as indicated on the package and according to your microwave strength. Put at least 4-5 cups of popped popcorn into the greased mixing bowl.
In the saucepan, melt the Stork Bake over medium heat. Add marshmallow and stir until completely melted. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and mix through. Make sure that each piece popcorn at least has a little bit of the marshmallow mixture touching it.
Now its time to get your hands dirty. Grease the insides of your hands with a little bit of Stork Bake, just to keep the sticky mixture from sticking to your hands. Now start making small-medium sized popcorn pops/balls with your hands.
Lightly grease a plate and place the already rolled popcorn balls on the plate and refrigerate until cool. Remember, the mixture will not go hard - it's not caramel - it will simply cool and keep the ball in its shape. Store in a airtight container in the refrigerator.
