I have no idea what made me think up this recipe. Maybe I was having some sort of a brain spasm, but all of a sudden I had the urge to merge popcorn and Rice Krispie squares.

The result is impressive. It’s no fine dining, but it’s very original and quite enjoyable to snack on. Be warned: it’s incredibly sugary and rich!

Ingredients

  • 1 bag store-bought popcorn, popped
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 5.5 oz marshmallows

Steps

  1. Line a 12-inch x 8-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Pop the popcorn according to the package directions. Remove any unpopped kernels and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, melt the butter, brown sugar, and honey in the microwave or a double boiler.
  4. Add the marshmallows and melt until smooth.
  5. Add the popcorn and mix gently. Pour the mixture into the dish and let stand for 1 hour or until the mixture is hard.
  6. Cut squares/balls/rectangles/chunks or eat it with a spoon. (I have to admit it’s not a very elegant dessert, but the taste is worth it).
