Caramel Marshmallow Popcorn

Oh My GOD.  How many of you buy a bag of marshmallows for s’mores or some recipe and end up with some leftover, and then it just sits there getting stale and you have no idea what else to use them in?!  This happens all the time.  Jayesh always looks pointedly at me when he sees a clipped bag of marshmallows in the back of the fridge.  Well now I’ve found a delicious use for them!

Almost always I have to have popcorn while watching a movie.  It reminds me of my weekly trips to the cinema with my mother.  We used to share a soda and a bag of popcorn with extra butter.  It was our thing.  Also reminds me of my grandfather-he LOVED popcorn.  He’d always ask me to pop a bag, especially when his throat was itchy from a cold.  He said he liked the way they scratched his throat on the way down.

So I’ve got a lot of fond memories tied up to these delicious little kernels.  Now I always like to top my popcorn with something other than butter.  I use pepper, red pepper, garlic powder, garlic chutney, etc.  I also like to dip them in salsa or sour cream.  Usually I like it savory, but every once in a while I have a sweet tooth and like to add caramel or something of the sort.  So here’s what you need.

 

Brown Sugar

Butter

Marshmallows

Popcorn (popped)

The brown sugar and butter should be 1:1 ratio.  Melt those in the microwave and mix.  Add in some marshmallows and microwave a little at a time and keep stirring.  The marshmallows inflate and make it hard to mix if you do a long period of time.  Pour this mix over your popcorn and ENJOY!!!

 

Does anyone else dress their popcorn, how do you do it?
