  • 8 c plain popped popcorn
  • ½ c unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 c light brown sugar
  • ¼ c half and half
  • 1 c mini marshmallows
  • ¼ c chopped pretzels
  • ¼ c chopped cashews


  • Spray an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray or use butter to grease the pan.
  • Pop popcorn and set aside (I used kettle corn for my recipe and it was delicious).
  • To create the caramel mixture, melt butter, brown sugar and half and half in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Bring mix to a boil, stirring on occasion until golden brown (approx 5-6 mins).
  • Reduce heat and stir in marshmallows until blended.
  • Add chopped pretzels and cashews to popcorn.
  • Pour caramel over popcorn and mix until evenly coated.
  • Spread into baking pan.
  • You can use a buttered spoon to help guide the mix into the pan easier.
  • Set aside until firm.


Option: Melt chocolate chips and drizzle over the top.
