Marshmallow Caramel Popcorn

We are huge popcorn fans over here. Give us microwave, movie theater, air popped, whatever, we love it. We usually make it with our old fashioned popcorn popper that makes the best salted and buttered or kettle corn I’ve ever had from home. Delicious.

But I also love caramel corn.

When making caramel corn I pop 1/2 cup of kernels in my airpopper and then I usually make the caramel in the microwave. I love my basic caramel popcorn recipe, which has the perfect combo of white and brown sugar, and makes the gooiest best caramel corn I’ve ever eaten.

And last week I decided to make a marshmallow caramel corn recipe. There are a few recipes online for this, but I went back to my basic recipe and just altered it a little from there so I knew it would have that good flavor I love. Plus the flavor of marshmallows. Yum!
