Soft and Gooey Marshmallow Popcorn

Prep Time:

15 minutes

Cook Time:

5 minutes






  • 32 cups popped popcorn

  • 1 16oz. bag mini-marshmallows

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 1/3 cup sugar

  • ½ cup light corn syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Put popped popcorn in a very LARGE bowl and add marshmallows, mix together.

  2. In a large saucepan, bring the butter, sugar, and corn syrup to a boil. Turn the heat down and let simmer for no more than 3 minutes. (Any longer and it will be hard, not gooey)

  3. Pour over popcorn/marshmallow mixture and stir well to coat entire contents.

This is best served warm but is just as enjoyable when eaten cold. Store any leftover popcorn in an airtight container to keep it soft and gooey.

Play around with this recipe. Add some nuts or raisins, maybe some pretzels. Enjoy this quick and easy snack.
