Make movie night a delicious one with this easy Marshmallow Caramel Corn. It’s ready in minutes and adds a special touch to everyone’s favorite movie snack!
Every summer, our family travels 45 miles to a drive-in theater to see a new family movie. It’s becoming one of our favorite family traditions. However, since it’s a long drive and late night coming home, we stick with in-home movie nights for the rest of the summer. This Marshmallow Caramel Corn is an easy way to make those “stay at home” movies a little more special.
We have a growing list of movies and TV shows to watch this summer, but up near the top is re-watching Hotel Transylvania (both 1 and 2) in anticipation of the July 13th release of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation. You can get a great deal on tickets with this Fandango offer!
The movie tells the story of Drac and his family going on a luxury cruise together. (Normally they are providing vacation to the world’s monsters at Hotel Transylvania, so it’s their turn to take a break!) However, the dream trip soon turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes that Drac is falling for the mysterious ship’s captain, Ericka, who is hiding a deadly secret!
I’ve been sure to stock up at Winco on snacks for movie night like Lance crackers with flavorful, wholesome fillings and Pop Secret popcorn. There’s just something FUN about sharing a simple bowl of popcorn with your family. If you want to take the great butter taste of Pop Secret popcorn up another notch, then this recipe for Marshmallow Caramel Corn is for you! Did I mention the whole thing is done in the microwave? EASY!
Start with butter and brown sugar in a microwavable bowl. Heat until melted.
Then add the marshmallows, and keep heating and stirring until you have a delicious, buttery sauce.
Lastly, pour that goodness over your popped popcorn and toss gently to coat! The whole recipe, including popping the popcorn first can be done in less than 10 minutes.
Marshmallow Caramel Corn
- 2 bags Pop Secret microwave popcorn popped
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 20 large marshmallows
- Pop the popcorn according to package instructions, then pour into a large bowl
- In a medium microwavable bowl, add butter and brown sugar. Heat in 30 second increments until melted, stirring frequently.
- Add the marshmallows and continue to microwave in short 30-60 second increments, stirring well to prevent sticking and burning.
- Once it's completely melted and mixed well, pour over popcorn, tossing gently to coat. Serve immediately.
If you have a family member who prefers savory and salty snacks to sweet ones, just leave their popcorn plain or grab a stack of Lance cracker sandwiches for them instead. Lance has been making little sandwiches for over 100 years with two awesome crackers on the outside with incredible spreads between. (Peanut butter and honey are my favorite!)
