Red, white and blue things make me happy. Especially if they taste good. This does. I’m calling it Patriotic Popcorn.
It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s 4th of July popcorn!
Here’s the Recipe:
2 bags of microwave popcorn
1/2 C karo syrup
1 1/3 C sugar
2 sticks butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 bag mini marshmallows
Red, white and blue M&M’s
Pop the popcorn and pour it into a very large bowl. If you need to, split it between 2 bowls.
Combine karo, sugar, butter and vanilla in a saucepan and heat until they boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 90 seconds and then remove from the heat.
Now, work fast. Pour the hot mixture over your popcorn. Using a wooden spoon, stir it quickly to coat all of the popcorn. Now pour in your marshmallows and stir them in as well. Then add your M&M’s. You might want to wait a minute or two before doing this so that they don’t melt in the hot popcorn. And you’re done. Easy and tastes GREAT!

Hi, just wondering if I can make this in advance. Does it keep well?
Ooops-should have responded to this sooner. Sorry! But yes, it keeps well, although I think it’s better fresh. Keep it in something airtight.

This looks great! What kind of popcorn? Just plain with no salt or butter?
I thought it would maybe need to be plain but found that it doesn’t really matter. I just use microwave popcorn and it works out great.

I just wanted you to know – I featured this recipe in my Memorial Day Recipe Round Up here -> http://www.momsmenuplanning.com/2013/05/memorial-day-recipe-round-up.html
So fun! Thanks!

The instructions say add cocoa with the karo, sugar etc but there is not cocoa in the ingredients list?
Oops! That’s a mistake. No, don’t add the chocolate (unless you want it). That’s from the Smores popcorn recipe. Thanks for letting me know.
I love this! I hope you’ll stop by and add this and any other posts you’re proud of to my Wednesday What We Wore, Read, and Made Link party
