Quick and yummy caramel popcorn- addicting!

Caramel Marshmallow Popcorn
  • 1 bag popcorn, popped (I used light butter)
  • 1 cube margarine or butter
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. mini-marshmallows (for the topping)
  • 1 c. mini marshmallows (that go w/the popped corn)
  1. Pop your popcorn however you want, then place in bowl with the 1 c. marshmallows.
  2. Melt the butter and brown sugar on the stove on low-medium, cook for two minutes. Add marshmallows, cook until all melted and mixed.
  3. Pour over popcorn and marshmallows, stirring well.
  4. Eat....yum.....
This is so fast and good! The marshmallow addition is really good, because they are not all the way melted when you mix in with the popcorn. I'd advise doubling the recipe. I've also microwaved this with good results. Just make sure to stir every 15 seconds or so after adding marshmallows.
Here is a recipe for basically what I'm thinking is the same thing, but microwave version.

Yummy Caramel Popcorn

  • 2 bags buttery popcorn (microwave and remove all kernels)
  • 26 large marshmallows
  • 2 cubes real butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar

  1. Microwave marshmallows, butter and sugar for 1 ½ minutes then take out and stir. Put back in for 30 seconds.
  2. Add ¼ tsp. baking soda and put back in for 8 seconds.
  3. Stir until frothy. Pour over popcorn and eat.
