Easy to make, kid friendly Patriotic Marshmallow Popcorn Snack!
Hey hey all! It’s Nancy from The Bitter Side of Sweet again! I hope you are having a wonderful extended weekend! Do you have plans for cookouts? We are keeping it way low key. We do have our youngins to entertain and feed so I thought I would come up with the perfect type of snack/dessert for little ones!
Making this popcorn was the simplest recipe that I have had made in a LONG time! I have an air popper so that basically did all of the work for me. Then I used my microwave to finish the rest of it and BAM! It was done! Seriously, it doesn’t get easier than that!
Now when I make this type of popcorn it always catches people off guard because it is sticky and sweet. But that is the fun of it!! You can also roll it into popcorn balls. I actually made some extra, bagged them up and sent them off to my hubby’s work!
This would also be a great go-to recipe for the Fourth of July! It is a favorite at any get together or family gathering and can be made in massive quantity.
