How to Make Fall Harvest Popcorn

You will need:

  • 10 Cups of Popped Popcorn
  • 3 tbsp. Butter (Sweet Cream, Salted)
  • 3 cups Mini Marshmallows
  • Hershey’s Drops Candy
  • Harvest Blend M&M’s

Popcorn for Easter Candy Popcorn

Start with approximately 10 cups of popcorn. Make sure you get out all of the un-popped kernels.  You don’t want to bite down on one of those!  We pop our popcorn on the stove (you can find our directions on How to Make Perfect Popcorn here) but you can use air-popped or microwave.  Once you have the popcorn made, salt it liberally.  It is so nice to taste the salty with the sweet marshmallow coating.  Not quite like Kettle Corn but close.

Marshmallow Mixture for the Easter Candy Popcorn

To make the Marshmallow Mixture for the Fall Harvest Popcorn, melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a medium sauce pan.  Once the butter is melted, add 3 cups of mini marshmallows. Stir until the marshmallows are melted.  Turn off the heat as soon as the last marshmallow has melted.

Pour marshmallow mixture into the bowl of popcorn

Slowly pour the marshmallow mixture over the salted popcorn. Gently fold the marshmallow mixture in with the popcorn until the popcorn is mostly covered.

The amount of marshmallow mixture you want to add is really up to your own taste. The more you add, the stickier the popcorn will be so we suggest that you add it a bit at a time, stir the popcorn and give it a taste before you add more. Leave a little bit of the marshmallow mixture for the next step.

Preparing the Easter Candy Popcorn for the candy

Now pour the popcorn onto a cookie sheet covered with foil or a silpat liner. Drizzle the remaining marshmallow mixture over the popcorn but do not mix it up. You will need the mixture at the top so the candy will have something to stick to.

Candy for the Fall Harvest Popcorn

Here is the candy that we added to our Celebration Popcorn.   We used the special Harvest Blend M&M mix that is available in stores in the Fall.  We also added a handful of Hershey’s Drops.

Now it is time to add the candy.  Don’t wait too long after you pour the popcorn onto the cookie sheet. You want the marshmallow mixture to still be warm and sticky. Sprinkle the candy onto the popcorn, concentrating on the areas with the most drizzled marshmallow mixture.  Allow the Fall Harvest Popcorn to cool. Break apart into pieces and serve.

Our family loves this popcorn so it has never lasted longer than a day at our house. This popcorn definitely tastes best right after it is made but will keep for a few days in an airtight container. The popcorn is a little chewier the next day because it absorbs some of the moisture from the marshmallow mixture but it still tastes good.

  1. What are the small little colorful candies that aren’t the m&m’s or the hershey drops?

  2. Where did you get the red-orange bowl that the popcorn was served in?
    I’ve been looking (unsuccessfully, so far) for a decorative autumn popcorn bowl.

    • Hi – we got it a few years ago. I think it was from Home Goods. It was a set that came with three fall colored bowls in red, gold and sage.
