The hubs made us watch Star Wars the other night when it was on tv. I mean, it’s good, but I don’t have the desire to watch 4 hours of aliens. Once is good enough for me. I made his favorite popcorn  with brown sugar and marshmallows and actually I couldn’t stop eating it either!! This is my friend, Stephanie’s recipe and we weren’t huge popcorn people til we had this. It’s that good! Oh, popcorn you really sucked us in.

  2. So Im muslim and I had to use halal marshmallows and they have more of a harder texture and have a fruity taste,though when I tried this it tasted exactly like caramel corn but with a crunch and it was amazing thank you!

  3. 5 stars
    Added a shake or two of cinnamon to the marshmallow mix before pouring and it was divine.

    for those who say it is to sweet. I use a hot air popper & 1 cup popcorn, other wise follow the recipe and cook on stove at low heat. have done this for over 2 years great!!!!
    just remember to take off heat just as soon as marshmallos are melted, or it will not stay soft & chewy

  6. Having celiac disease and not wanting to spend $6 on a small bag of popcorn balls which are my favorite I thank you for making my own gluten free products are so expensive so thank you again

  7. So yummy. Made as a special after school treat. Very sweet so next time I think I’ll cut the sugar a little but delish as is. 🙂 Thank you so much for the recipe!!

  8. by bag of popcorn do you mean the microwavable one?
    Do you know how many cups of popcorn seeds?

  9. I made this twice over the past few weeks. The first time I followed the recipe exactly, and though delicious, I felt diabetic After haha! So I just made it again and halved the sugar and cooked it on the stove top. Still plenty sweet, and tasted awesome! Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Any suggestions to make this without microwaving it? I’m thinking melt the marshmallows in a pot on the stove and stir in the rest…

  11. this looks like such a yummy snack!

  12. My kids love popcorn and I am sure this sweetened version would make them very happy- me too! Sounds great.

  13. I love that this is sized for a bag of popcorn. I’m going to give it a try!
