Press into balls using the JOLLY TIME® Pop Corn Ball Maker, or butter your hands to protect them from the heat and shape as you wish. Microwave Magic: Put popped popcorn in large pan or bowl; set aside. In large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter on HIGH until butter is melted, about 30 to 45 seconds. Add marshmallows.
