My cousin Carol shared this recipe with me. YUMMMY!!!!!!! It is very easy.  This is the first time that I have made popcorn balls.  I can not wait to make more this weekend.

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup oil
 2 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
20 caramels (I used 1 cup of caramel bits)
1/2 pound salted peanuts (without skins)
10 cups popped corn
1/2 pound M&M's plain candies

In microwave:  melt butter, oil, marshmallows and carmels.  1 1/2 - 2 minutes - stir, then 30 more seconds.

Place popcorn in a large bowl.  Add melted ingredients and stir together until popcorn is well coated.

Alternative idea:
Place popcorn and peanuts in a large mixing bowl. Add melted ingredients and stir together until popcorn and peanuts are evenly coated. Add the M&Ms last. Shape into popcorn balls and wrap in plastic wrap. You can also color this with several tablespoons of jello.
