I am loving these popcorn recipes using one package of microwave popcorn. It’s perfect for those days I only want to make enough for two or three people, not 20!

Caramel Marshmallow Popcorn is easy to make for large or small group. Perfect popcorn recipe for one or many. Share this with your friends, they'll love it!

I may or may not have eaten 95% of this… Is that bad?

    I will have to admire this popcorn from afar because it would not end well for me if I made it!

    Oh boy, I would eat it all. Love that it’s made with just a bag so it’s not a ton. Thanks!

    My daughter just made something similar to this for the children and they loved it. I’ll show her your recipe. It’s a little different. Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday. Pinning.

    Putting crushed Oreos on the popcorn right after the marsh mellow is really good as well!

    Can I use marshmallow cream instead of marshmallows?

    • July 15, 2014 / 10:26 am

      I’ve never used marshmallow cream but I’m sure you could! Let me know how it turns out 🙂 I bet it will be delicious.

    I pinned this recipe a long time ago and have been wanting to try it. I think I will finally make it for our Fourth of July Barbeque. I plan to make a red batch and a blue batch then mix the two together.

    This look awesome but I don’t use microwave popcorn (we do it the old fashioned way here). Any idea how many cups of popcorn a bag would be?

    • October 9, 2013 / 1:03 am

      I’m not exactly sure, but I wouldn’t think you would need more than 1/4 cup unpopped popcorn.
