Now this is what we call "Yummy Popcorn"

Well, I'm not quite sure what to say about this popcorn other than "It's absolutely, positively, without a doubt my favorite, faaavvorate, carmel popcorn!!!!" If your looking for something to satisfy your sweet tooth or you just need something amazing to snack on during a movie, than look no further. You have found it. This popcorn is really easy to make and only takes about seven minutes of your time.

(Lets be honest this picture really doesn't do it justice but it is oh so tasty!)

1/2-3/4 cup unpopped popcorn kernals (or 1-2 bags microwave popped popcorn)
1 1/3 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter
1/3 cup karo syrup
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 cups marshmallows for layering

Pop kernals in a popcorn popper. (if you do not have a popcorn popper than buy the unsalted and unbuttered microwave popcorn at the grocery store. However, I highly suggest you invest in one. Makes this process that much funner. I know funner is not a word but it just sounded right at the time.) Moving on, you will then sort through the popcorn and remove any hard unpopped kernals that may be present. Next layer the popcorn and marshmallows in the bowl. Then bring the sugar, butter, syrup, and vanilla to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes. Finally, pour the hot mixture over the popcorn and mallows and give it a good stirring. Allow the popcorn to cool before eating! I know it's tempting, but trust me I learn the hard way everytime I make it! This popcorn also works as a great gift. Just toss some in a cute celophane bag or a cute box and you are good to go! Happy Popcorn Popping!
