With a handful of ingredients and under ten minutes you get these amazing Candy Popcorn Treats with Rolos.
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.
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!
- 8 c popped popcorn
- 10 oz mini marshmallows
- ¾ c sugar
- ½ c butter (1 stick)
- ¼ c corn syrup
- 12 oz Rolos (chopped) 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, melt butter then add sugar and corn syrup.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly (approx. 4 mins).
Pour hot syrup over the popcorn mix.
Put into buttered 9x13 dish and cut into squares (like Rice Krispy Treats).
* Other candy add in options:
- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
- Hershey's Kisses
- Junior Mints
- Crushed Oreo Cookies
* Nutrition info is based on air popped popcorn.
You could easily turn these into a holiday version too.
