St. Patrick's Popcorn
  • 10 cups popcorn (I used ½ cup popcorn kernels)
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups mini marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons green sprinkles
  • 2 teaspoons shamrock sprinkles
  • ¼ cup green sixlets
  1. Pop popcorn in microwave. Use ¼ cup kernels in brown lunch bag and fold over several times. Rip vertically to keep fold in place. Use popcorn setting on microwave and repeat for a second batch.
  2. Put popped popcorn in large mixing bowl being careful to remove unpopped kernels.
  3. In saucepan over medium heat, melt butter.
  4. Add marshmallows and stir until they are all melted.
  5. Add sea salt.
  6. Remove from heat and add vanilla and stir.
  7. Slowly pour the marshmallow mixture over the salted popcorn. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture in with the popcorn until the popcorn is mostly covered. Leave a little bit of the marshmallow mixture for the next step.
  8. Pour the popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Drizzle a little bit of the remaining marshmallow mixture over the popcorn but do not mix it up. You will need the mixture at the top so the candy will have something to stick to.
  9. Sprinkle the candy and sprinkles onto the popcorn, concentrating on the areas with the most drizzled marshmallow mixture. Allow the popcorn to cool. Break apart into pieces and serve.
