Our Cotton Candy Popcorn is a must have for your next at home movie night. Cotton Candy Popcorn is an easy snack that both kids and adults will enjoy. I’ve been on a popcorn kick lately that I can’t seem to get enough of it. I wanted to mix up my own batch one day and I couldn’t decide whether I should make a salty kind or a sweet kind. As you can see, the sweet kind won! This Cotton Candy Popcorn will satisfy any sweet tooth!
Longtime love of Cotton Candy Popcorn Recipe
When I first met my husband (almost 15 years ago!) he was the big popcorn fan. I never understood why he liked it so much. The only time I enjoyed it was when we went to the movies and I ordered it, with extra butter, of course! Even then I couldn’t finish a whole bag myself. I preferred chips, nachos with cheese, or even a box of Good & Plenty with my movie.
Well it seems lately that the tables have turned. He’s not so much a popcorn fan anymore but it seems I am! Every time I go to the mall I can’t pass Kernels without getting a bag (or two) to munch on as I’m shopping or driving home. I know once I get home the kids will finish off the bag but my husband will have nothing to do with it. I really shouldn’t complain…it just means more for me!
We hope you’ll enjoy some of our other favorite snack recipe too!
Ingredients for Cotton Candy Popcorn Recipe
For this popcorn I made it with extra butter popcorn because, really, it’s all I had. I actually quite enjoyed it because it gave it the sweet and salty combo that I love. If that’s not your thing, then use plain popcorn and you’ll be all set! Hope you enjoy it!
• 2 bags of popped microwavable popcorn
• 1/4 cup butter
• 1 large bag of miniature marshmallows
• 2 packages of Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting Creations
How to make Cotton Candy Popcorn Recipe
• Preheat oven to 300 F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
• Pop popcorn according to package directions and pour onto prepared cookie sheet. Pick out all unpopped corn kernels.
• In a large saucepan, melt butter on medium low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until all marshmallows are melted.
• Remove from heat and stir in the packages of Duncan Hines Cotton Candy Frosting Creations.
• Pour mixture over popcorn and stir to coat. Mixture will be very sticky so you might want to butter the back of your spoon to help spread it around. I used my hands to mix it….not a good idea, unless you don’t mind getting messy!
• Once popcorn is well coated, place cookie sheet in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
• Remove pan and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
Today we’re in the kitchen with Liz from A Sweet Baker and my kids are drooling over her photo’s.
