This is a recipe for “movie night popcorn” but I put my own spin on it which helped slightly in the nutritional department. There are 4 basic ingredients: popped popcorn, butter, marshmallows and brown sugar but in my case, coconut sugar. It’s basically rice krispie treats but made with popcorn instead of cereal.
I used about 8 cups of popped corn and mixed the following in a pan over med hi heat until melted.
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 c coconut sugar
2 c marshmallows
Once softened and melted together, pour over the corn, stirring and mixing to ensure coverage on all popcorn. Watch out-this stuff is trouble! I/we ate so much that the roof of my mouth is still sore. Handfuls of this molten sugar, lava-laced ancient grain made their way into my mouth until the batch was almost gone.
So, no more! Now you know why I said it’s trouble. Grocery store bought marshmallows are bad anyway, full of lots of stuff you can’t even pronounce, but darn, it’s good every once in a while! So, this is the last time I will blog about these evil fluffy chubs of sugary goodness. 🙂
