Mint chocolate chip popcorn treats

Serves 6


  • 3-1/2 cups popcorn, popped

  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • Green food coloring

  1. In a saucepan, add the butter and marshmallows. Heat the mixture until the marshmallows are melted, stirring constantly. Add the peppermint and green food dye (a few drops will get you that gorgeous mint color).
  2. Place the popcorn in a mixing bowl. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and stir to coat.
  3. Spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray and press the popcorn mixture into a foil-lined 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Top the mixture with chopped mint chocolate candies.
  4. Chill for at least two hours or until solid.
