At our Unicorn party last weekend with my nieces I made some super delicious and sticky Unicorn Marshmallow Popcorn. It was pink, fluffy, sweet and so yummy! The recipe is simple enough if you have ever made rice crispy treats, but the addition of jello powder to the recipe adds the cute pink color as well as FLAVOR! I can’t wait to try this recipe again with other flavors – it was amazing!
1 – Melt 6 oz of salted butter in a stock pot over medium heat. Why a stockpot? You’ll thank me when you add in all that popcorn.
2 – Add a 16 oz bag of mini marshmallows, that is, what’s left of the bag after you ate a few, and stir frequently.
3 – Once the marshmallows have melted most of the way (you want it lumpy – at least that’s what I tell myself when my hand occasionally runs across my tummy), remove from the heat and add in a 3.5 oz packet of strawberry jello powder and stir to combine.
4- Pour in 12 cups of popped popcorn and gently stir the whole batch together. This is the part where you are glad you used a stock pot since a smaller pot would have it all jumping out the sides.
5 – Garnish with color mini marshmallows and sprinkles!
