  • 10 c Popped Popcorn
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 3 c Mini Marshmallows
  • M&Ms of your choice


    1. Pop 10 cups of popcorn and remove all of the un-popped kernels. Set aside in a large bowl. (Add salt, if needed.)
    2. Add 3 tablespoons of butter to a medium pan. Melt the butter on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the butter is completely melted.
    3. Add 3 cups of mini marshmallows to the melted butter. Stir until marshmallows are covered in the butter. Continue to stir until the marshmallows are completely melted.
    4. Remove marshmallow mixture from heat as soon as last marshmallow has melted.
    5. Slowly pour about a third of the marshmallow mixture over the popcorn.
    6. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture into the popcorn. Continue to add the marshmallow mixture a little at a time, stirring well between each addition. The popcorn should be completely covered in the warm mixture.
    7. Now pour the popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with foil, or parchment paper. Use a spatula to spread out the popcorn evenly.
    8. Now it's time to add the M&Ms. You'll want to do this quickly while the marshmallow mixture is still warm and sticky. I used a handful of fall colored M&Ms - regular, peanut butter, fudge brownie, and peanut.
    9. Allow the Spooky Scarecrow Popcorn to cool. Pull apart into pieces or make popcorn balls and enjoy!
