This sweet and salty treat is easy to make in batches and package up for a Valentine’s Day goodie. Customize it with whatever sweet mix-ins you’d like!
10 cups of popped popcorn
3 tablespoons salted butter
3 cups mini marshmallows
Valentine-themed sprinkles or candy confetti
Place popped popcorn in a large bowl and salt liberally.
Melt butter in a medium sized saucepan, then add the marshmallows. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until marshmallows are melted.
Pour three-quarters of the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn and gently fold in until most of the kernels are coated.
Pour the popcorn onto a greased cookie sheet and spread it into an even layer. Drizzle popcorn with the remaining melted marshmallow mixture.
Sprinkle popcorn with M&Ms and sprinkles. Allow to cool, then break apart in pieces to serve.
-Make sure you use a large enough bowl to stir together the popcorn and marshmallow. You don’t want it to overflow.
-You can use a spoon to fold the melted marshmallow in, or slip on gloves and just use your hands.
-Don’t make this treat too far ahead of time. The popcorn will get mushy after a couple days.
