For those popcorn lovers, here is a recipe that combines sweet and salty to make a great snack for the kids at home or to set out when entertaining.
Popcorn drizzled in Marshmallow
- 2 bags popcorn
- 1 bag jumbo marshmallows
- 1/4 cup butter
Put the big saucepan on the stove top and put 2 bags of popcorn in and cook it as normal, until the popcorn pops.
Set the popped popcorn aside and open the bag of marshmallows. Toss the marshmallows into another pot on the stove and melt with the 1/4 cup of butter. Cook until everything is melted and you have a smooth, creamy sauce.
While the sauce is still warm, add back in your popcorn and stir well. Make sure you cover every kernel in the sweet sauce.
Put marshmallow covered popcorn in pan
Set the marshmallow covered popcorn aside on a baking pan lined with wax paper.
Collect the popcorn into medium-sized balls and let cool on the baking sheet. The balls are like rice crispy treats, but have a great combination with the salt of the popcorn and the sweetness from the marshmallows.
Skewer popcorn balls
For entertaining, take a skewer and add a popcorn ball, then a jumbo marshmallow. Alternate the popcorn balls and jumbo marshmallows across the entire skewer and set out as festive treats.
