Caramel Marshmallow Popcorn

This is a sweet popcorn twist, and it is an absolute gooey mess. But that’s okay. I love this for movie nights in and it’s so fun at sleepovers. Sometimes I add a pinch of salt as well, and its that salty sweet yummyness that’s all over pinterest right now. Gotta love it.

To cut the carbohydrates in this, I often substitute brown sugar for splenda’s brown sugar blend. For every cup of regular brown sugar, you use half a cup of splenda brown sugar, so it cuts the sugar and carbohydrates by 6 grams per serving in this recipe. It’s good stuff. I have never noticed a taste difference, but I am also pretty skeptical on the fake sugar, so I’ll let you be the judge. Nutrition for both splenda brown sugar and regular brown sugar are at the bottom.

Serves 6

1/4 cup brown sugar (or 2 tablespoons of splenda brown sugar)

1/4 cup butter

4-5 marshmallows

6 cup popcorn.

  • Microwave brown sugar and butter for 2 minutes.
  • Add marshmallows.
  • Microwave until melted, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.
  • Pour over popcorn and stir with a spatula until all is coated.
