Preparing the Popcorn

Step 1: You will need 10 cups of popcorn. 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. 
Step 2: After the popcorn is popped, make sure to remove all of the un-popped kernels.  You don’t want to bite down on one of those! 
Step 3: Once you have made the popcorn, salt it liberally.  It is so nice to taste the salty popcorn with the sweet marshmallow coating.  Not quite like Kettle Corn but close.

Preparing the Marshmallow Mixture

Step 4: To make the Marshmallow Mixture, add 3 tablespoons of butter to a medium saucepan.  Melt the butter on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the butter is completely melted.
Step 5: Add 3 cups of mini marshmallows to the saucepan.
Step 6: Stir until the marshmallows are covered in butter, and then continue to stir until the marshmallows are completely melted.
Step 7: Take the marshmallow mixture off the heat as soon as the last marshmallow has melted.

Step 8 & 9:  Slowly pour about a third of the marshmallow mixture over the salted popcorn.
Step 10: Gently fold the marshmallow mixture in with the popcorn.  Continue to add the marshmallow mixture a bit at a time, stirring between each addition.
Step 11: The popcorn should be completely covered in the warm marshmallow mixture.

Step 13: Use the spatula to even the popcorn out on the cookie sheet.

Candy Mix-Ins

Four white ramekins filled with green, brown, and purple M&M's.

Step 14: Here is the candy that we added to our Bewitched Halloween Popcorn.  We used a handful of green and dark brown Pretzel M&M’s and a handful of green and dark brown regular M&M’s. We also used a handful of Purple regular-sized M&Ms.  You can find these in any candy store, at Party City, or on sites like Amazon. If you can’t find these purple M&M’s you can go ahead and use orange, that would look pretty too.

Assembling the Bewitched Halloween Popcorn

Step 15: Once the popcorn is covered in marshmallow mixture it is time to add the candy.  But don’t wait too long. You want the marshmallow mixture to still be warm and sticky so the candy and sprinkles will stick to it. Sprinkle the candy onto the popcorn.  Allow the Bewitched Halloween Popcorn to cool. Break apart into pieces and serve.
