Combine corn syrup, marshmallows, margarine, powdered sugar and water. Heat on the stove over medium low heat until melted and gently boiling, stirring continuously.
Pop 3 bags of Orville Redenbacher’s® popcorn and stir the popcorn into the syrupy mix until well combined.
Use medium sheets of parchment paper, about 10 inches square, and drop a couple large spoonfuls of popcorn mixture onto the paper. Then, use the paper to shape the popcorn into a ball and wrap the paper around the popcorn to hold the shape. Place paper wrapped popcorn balls in a large muffin pan to hold the popcorn balls for about 20 minutes in the refrigerator...just enough time to let them harden up a little bit.
Remove the paper and place popcorn balls back into muffin tin and top them with melted chocolate chips. You could serve the popcorn balls up like this, with melted chocolate, or you could pop them back into the refrigerator for another 20 minutes or so and let the chocolate harden.
