Move beyond basic butter and take popcorn to a whole new level holiday season with this quick and easy recipe. 

 

Ingredients

  • 2 c. popcorn
  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • 3 T. butter
  • 3 c. marshmallows
  • Red and green peanut M&Ms 
  • Red and green milk chocolate M&Ms

Directions

Start by making a batch of homemade popcorn using the popcorn kernels, oil and salt. If you're in a pinch for time, feel free to use air-popped or microwaved popcorn. After the popcorn is popped, remove leftover kernels and lay out on a prepared cookie sheet. Salt the popcorn as needed. Next, make the marshmallow mixture by melting the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and gradually stir in the marshmallows. Once the marshmallows are melted, immediately remove from the stove and pour over the popcorn. Gently fold the popcorn into the mixture and add in the M&Ms. Allow the popcorn mixture to cool before serving in Chinet® Cut Crystal® 9-oz. cups.
