Marshmallow Popcorn

This recipe isn't linkable because it was just a picture someone uploaded and put the instructions as the caption.  I ended up doing it my own way anyhow (not on purpose, lol!)

3-4 bags popcorn (pop and take out extra kernels) 
1 sticks of butter (1/2 cup) 
16 oz bag of marshmallows 
1 cup brown sugar 
Microwave butter, marshmallows, and brown sugar for 2 1/2 min. Take out and stir. Microwave again for 1 min. Repeat until thin sauce. When done pour over popcorn and mix. YUM!

The difference between what I did and the original recipe is the butter and the amount of popcorn.  The first time I accidentally only used 1 stick of butter instead of 2 and I liked the results better with less butter.  These pics are of the second attempt doing it "right" and I wasn't as pleased.  It was runnier and easier to mix on the popcorn, but it made the popcorn mushier and stickier.  I made them the first time for all my friends and neighbors for Christmas and got raving reviews, so I know it's not just me ;)  I also felt the need for a bit more popcorn, hence the 4th bag.



  1. you should try popping your popcorn in just a regular bag...I found it on pintrest and it's magic... here's my blog post on it.

  2. Thanks Kiera! I'll have to try it! I've heard of it before, but never bothered to check it out and try it. :)
