Patriotic Marshmallow Popcorn

First of all, I need to know who has been holding out on me!  This marshmallow popcorn treat is deathly delicious.  I love sweet and salty snacks and I especially love easy recipes.  This marshmallow popcorn recipe was perfect. I love Rice Krispie treats and I love homemade caramel corn, so this recipe was destined to become a favorite.

When I was at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I saw these darling ceramic red and white striped popcorn bowls.  When I saw the red and white stripes, I immediately thought of the Fourth of July.  I’ve seen a bunch of marshmallow popcorn recipes floating through out Pinterest and knew with a little blue food coloring I had an all-American match.

Patriotic Marshmallow Popcorn Recipe


  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 2 10 oz bags of marshmallows
  • 3 bags of microwave popcorn


In a large pan, melt butter over low heat.

Add marshmallows to the pan and coat with the melted butter.

Stir marshmallows over low heat and continue to let the marshmallows melt.

Add some blue gel food coloring to the melted marshmallows.  You can adjust the amount of food coloring to how vibrant you want your color to be.

Stir until the food coloring is mixed well.

Pop your popcorn in the microwave then remove the kernels. I like to put my popcorn in a strainer and shake the popcorn gently to let the kernels sink to the bottom.

Put the popcorn in a bowl, then cover with the melted marshmallow mixture.

Mix until the popcorn is well coated.

Put into a cute red and white striped popcorn container.  I found this ceramic one at Hobby Lobby, but you can find them just about anywhere.


What yummy treats and desserts are you making for the Fourth of July?
