Notes

TOPPING IDEAS

  1. cereal marshmallows
  2. Try Sweet's Cinnamon bears. Its a huge favorite. (I like to cut them up into ⅓'s or ½'s
  3. Gummy Bears
  4. Salty Peanut
  5. Once the marshmallow is completely cooled you can add other candies like M&M's, Mike and Ikes etc. Just dont add them while the popcorn is hot or you'll have a melty chocolatey mess. Delicious mess but a mess. 

MARSHMALLOW POPCORN FAQ

HOW DO I STORE MARSHMALLOW POPCORN? 

IF there are leftovers store them in a air tight container, even a ziplock bag is great. It can stay at room temp. 

CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD? 

Yes! you can make this a day ahead if needed. It will stay pretty dang soft and fluffy until it's all devoured. 

CAN I MAKE POPCORN BALLS WITH THIS RECIPE? 

YES! Marshmallow popcorn is pretty sticky in texture so making a ball will not be problem. Once the mixture is all combined instead of leaving it in the bowl to cool I recommend laying it out on parchment paper. When it is still warm but not hot form them into popcorn balls and let cool.
