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’s M&Ms

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. 

Helpful tips: 

-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.
