Spending time cooking with my kids is a win/win. They not only learn about basics in cooking and baking but they have to use math, reading and more. Drew and I recently made this treat for after school and they turned out delicious! Oh so melty, gooey and full of candy goodness. With a handful of ingredients and under ten minutes you get these amazing Candy Popcorn Treats with Rolos.
You could make these treats with a variety of add-ins. So if you don’t like Rolos… no big deal, just switch them out for something else. If you love Oreos, crush them up and add them instead. Another easy, peasy recipe to add to your list!
- 12 c. popped pocorn
- 1 bag mini marshmallows
- 1 1/2 c. sugar
- 1 c. butter
- 1/2 c. Karo syrup
- Chopped Rolos or alternative candy add in
- Butter a 9x13 dish and set aside.
- In a large bowl mix popcorn and mini marshmallows. Add chopped Rolos to popcorn.
- In a small pot, add sugar, butter and Karo syrup. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

You could easily turn these into a holiday version too. Yep, I’ll be sharing something related to a Valentine’s Day version soon.
