The Sky's the Limit Popcorn

The photo above is from Super Bowl Sunday last year. Jamie made the Reeses version and the Oreo version of this popcorn. This recipe is fun because it's so versatile! Add the candy or cookies of your choice. I've had Reeses Peanutbutter Cups (my personal favorite) and Junior Mints and Hershey's kisses. You name it!

In a large bowl, mix:

2 bags of microwave popcorn (I use about 12 cups of homemade)

1 bag of mini-marshmallows

In a pan, add:

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup butter

1/2 cup Karo Syrup

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

Chop candybars or pour in you choice of candy. Some options:

  • about 8 regular size Reeses Peanut butter cups

  • about 40 Hershey's kisses (I used Mint Truffle last night and they were a hit!)

  • 1 theater size box of Junior Mints

  • about 30 Oreo cookies crushed

  • a package of Chips Ahoy cookies, crushed

  • get original, try something you love!

Add the candy or cookies to the popcorn. Pour the hot syrup over the popcorn. Put into a well-buttered 9x13" pan and cut like Rice Krispie treats or toss in a large bowl and serve with a scoop or spoon. Enjoy!

I make this one all the time. I always put the holiday-colored M&Ms in it. Simple, yet it looks so pretty and really is DELICIOUS!
