There is nothing better than snacking on popcorn while watching a good flick, that is undeniable. But when you are watching a slew of awesome Christmas movies, you don’t want plain old popcorn, you want something sweet and festive. Call us popcorn snobs, but this ‘Grinch’ themed popcorn is not only tasty, it is festive and the kids will love, love, love it!
Here is how to make it!
You will need:
- 10 Cups of Popped Popcorn
- 3 tablespoons Butter (Sweet Cream Salted)
- 3 cups Mini Marshmallows
- Food Coloring – Yellow
- Food Coloring – Blue
- 1/2 Cup Mini Marshmallows
- M&M Candies – Red
Start with approximately 10 cups of popcorn and remove all of the un-popped kernels. You can pop your own popcorn on the stove, or use microwave popcorn too! Once you have the popcorn made, salt it liberally.
Now for the marshmallow mixture.
Melt 3-tablespoons of butter in a medium sauce pan. Once the butter is melted add 3 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted. Turn off the heat. Add a couple of drops of yellow food coloring and mix until the marshmallow mixture is a bright yellow. When you have a good yellow color, add in one very small drop of blue food coloring and stir. This combination of food coloring should get you the perfect “Grinch Green” marshmallow mixture.
Pour the mixture over the popped popcorn and gently mix, making sure to coat all pieces of popcorn!
Now pour the popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with foil or a silpat liner. 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.
Sprinkle red M&M’s and more marshmallow’s over the top of your popcorn!
Voila! You are done! Now all that is left to do is eat and enjoy!
