You know I love my Halloween treats! And I also have a few classic I use for any party – sugar cookies, rice krispies, cake pops (or oreo cookie ball pops most of the time) and usually some kind of popcorn treat! I have made caramel popcorn, Churro popcorn, Red Hot Cinnamon popcorn, muddy buddy popcorn, and Candy popcorn!!! And more! SO of course I had to have a Halloween Popcorn!
Sticky, ooey gooey, marshmallow popcorn is perfect for Halloween. Add some Green food dye, some candy eyeballs and you have a slime monster! It couldn’t be easier and couldn’t be more popular with the kiddos. First – don’t forget to get out all the popcorn kernels. Next tip – I love to leave mine more gooey by doing more marshmallows than most marshmallow popcorn recipes. It’s all about being sticky and getting that great stretch when you pull it!
Marshmallow popcorn is super easy to make and by adding green dye an candy eyeballs it makes an amazing halloween treat!
- 10 C popped popcorn
- 1/2 C packed light brown sugar
- 1/3 C butter
- 16 oz mini marshmallows
- green dye
- candy eyeballs
Place popcorn in a large bowl. If you like it gooey, use less popcorn. (8-10 C is my favorite.)
Melt butter and brown sugar in a saucepan. Add marshmallows. Stir until melted and smooth.
- Stir in green dye.
- Pour mixture over popcorn and stir. Sprinkle in the candy eyeballs.
I mean SERIOUSLY – could it be more perfect for Halloween??? But keep some soap and warm water close – it is CRAZY sticky…
