It’s the weekend…you’re ready for a break…you decide to party…and a movie is definitely in order…but first, you need a snack. A fast snack. Hmm. If you’re like me, you stare into the treat cupboard (yes, I have a treat cupboard…is that pathetic? Or just plain awesome??), and nothing appeals to you. You want something warm, melty, and gooey good. But what? Well, my friends, have I got the solution for you. If you have microwave popcorn, butter, brown sugar and marshmallows on hand, you are in luck. Within five minutes you will have yourself a fantastic movie snack! Thanks to Natalie who pinterested (that can be a verb, right?) this recipe, we now have the answer to the age-old dilemma, what are we going to snack on? It’s like rice krispy treats meets caramel popcorn. Now that would make a good movie . . . .
1 bag microwave popcorn
1/3 cup butter
1/3 c brown sugar
2¼ c miniature marshmallows
Pop popcorn in microwave according to package directions. Empty into bowl and remove unpopped kernels. Set aside.
Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Add brown sugar and marshmallows and stir until melted. Pour over popped corn. Stir until popcorn is evenly coated. Once cool, store in airtight container.
