Yummy Spring Popcorn

The other day while at Walmart I found Crunch 'n Munch on sale for 50 cents so I went ahead and picked up 2 boxes and then came home to decide what I would do with it. I ran across this blog post for Easter Candy Popcorn and went to work.

I took the Crunch 'n Munch and poured it on my big platter.



Take 1/2 stick of butter, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and 1/2 bag of marshmallows and melt together.



In the middle of the melting process this little fellow woke up and was throwing himself a fit because he wanted a bottle. I made a bottle one handed while still stirring and I did a big no no.


This was the only time I had ever done this. I really didn't want my mixture to burn.


I poured the melted mixture on top and lightly tossed and threw on some pink and white candies. 


Once dried a little I balled them up and put in cupcake liners and stuck a spring pick in each one.
This worked out great for when I put plastic wrap on top to take to Jack's daycare. 

Super easy and yummy and it makes a great little treat. 
The original recipe called for regular popcorn but this worked out really great because peanuts were already in there to give them a little hint of salt.
Sweet & Salty...can't go wrong with that!

  2. Looks really yummy!

    A big no no? LOL. I did that all the time by the time Violet was about 4 months. She hated it when I would hold her bottle. She would try to do it and we would both get frustrated. LOL

  3. I like sweet and salty too. It's usually hard to decide which one, so why not both? :)
