  • Place popcorn in a bowl and pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn; stir to coat.

Cook's Notes:

I also tried it using white sugar and a little almond and rum flavoring. This gave it more of a glazed english toffee flavor.

This tastes between a Crackerjack and a rice krispy treat. Good stuff. Not so sticky after a few minutes, it hardens like Crackerjacks. Got it down to a single serving - 10 mini marshmallows, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, mixed with 1.5 cups popcorn. Read More

This is very tasty but incredibly messy. I would definitely take some oven time to firm things up as Maria Latham did according to her review on this item. I think I'll stick with corn syrup for sugar coated popcorn snacks in the future. Read More

This stuff is insanely good! We have followed the recipe exactly and modified it to include more marshmallows and vanilla. Excellent both ways. The longer you cook the Carmel mixture the harder it will be and the less sticky. I prefer the sticky mess with soft delicious popcorn you goodness. Read More

Very very good. I was out of corn syrup so I was looking for a caramel corn recipe without corn syrup. Marshmallows were a perfect additional. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Really good stuff! Not healthy but good. And very easy. I've used up to 12 cups of popcorn still works great! Read More

This looks Delish...but I'll have to try it with some real cane sugar. The molasses will give it a real great flavor & super sticky texture and deep brown color. Can't wait to give it a try tomorrow night. Read More

Really yummy. I made it for a Halloween treat and called it cobweb popcorn. I made it just as the recipe stated (although I didn't have big marshmallows. I used the tiny ones; 1/2 cup for each big one). My boys have already requested I make it again. Read More
