   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      tablespoons   Unsalted butter
    4      cups          Mini marshmallows
    9      cups          Popped popcorn
      1/2  cup           Confectioners' sugar
    1      tablespoon    Milk
                         Gumdrops, cinnamon candies
           s;             -- fruit leather, jelly
                         pretzels -- for garnish.
 
 In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and 
 cook, stirring often, until melted and syrupy, about 5 minutes. Place the 
 popped popcorn in a large lightly greased shallow pan. Pour the syrup over 
 the popcorn, tossing to coat evenly.
 While still warm, form 6 balls about 5 in diameter from the coated popcorn 
 for the bottom sections, giving the balls flat bases so the snowmen will 
 stand. Form 6 balls about 3-1/2 in diameter for the middle sections. Then 
 form 6 balls about 2 in diameter for the top sections. Stir in the 
 confectioners' sugar and milk together until smooth. Use the icing to stack 
 three popcorn balls of decreasing sizes into a snowman, then attach candies 
 to decorate. (Gumdrops for hats, fruit leather for scarves, etc.)
