Popcorn Bars Recipe

I thought will be great snack for this holiday season with green and red MM's.
 I didn't have roasted peanut at home, so I used Cashew instead.
Wrapped in for school snacks.
                   1/4 cup butter
                   1/4 cup light corn syrup /sugar
                   1 package (10 ounces) large marshmallows
                   2 quarts popped popcorn
                  3/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, or cashew chopped
                  1-1/4 cups M&M's minis

I don't use Corn syrup, I substitute 1/4 cup white sugar with 1 spoon of water instead.


In a sauce pan, melt butter on low heat: add corn syrup and marshmallows. Cook and stir over low heat for 3-4 minutes or until smooth. Add popcorn; stir until coated. Stir in peanuts and M&M's until combined. Spread into a greased pan. Cool to temperature. Cut into bars and enjoy!!

I would love for you to leave a comment and follow my blog.

  8. These look easy to make and are nice and festive with the red and green M&M's. The colors could be easily changed up for any holiday, red and pink for Valentine's Day, pastels for Easter. I can't wait to try these. I found you through Aloha Friday.

  9. These look so good Sarah!! We made caramel popcorn several times over Christmas. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas?? Thanks so much for linking up over at WholeHearted Home last month. I kinda got swallowed up with all there was to do, especially the doing part about enjoying my family and sure didn't keep up with blogging.
