Kristen's Marshmallow Caramel Corn

This recipe comes from Kristen, but since I made it recently and have the pictures, I'll post it.  It is the perfect treat for family movie night or game day and is quick and easy to make. . . .and oh, so, yummy!
2 bags microwave popcorn, popped with unpopped kernels removed
1 cup real butter
1 cup brown sugar
30 large marshmallows
 Place popcorn(Kristen taught me to put the popcorn from the microwave bags by handfuls instead of just dumping it in- so you don't get those teeth-breaking unpopped kernals in your bowl) in a large bowl. Melt butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan on the stove.  Stir constantly while it melts.  Let boil 1 minute (not longer). Remove from heat and add marshmallows and stir and stir  until marshmallows are melted and all is well blended. Pour over popcorn and stir until popcorn is coated evenly.

Hi! I'm new to your blog and just love your recipes so far! I'm going to try the sloppy joe recipe this week. For the caramel popcorn-you list 2 cubes of real butter. Is this 2 Tablespoons? Thank you so much! God Bless and Merry Christmas. :)

Welcome, Mimi! We hope you enjoy the recipes. 2 cubes butter is 1 cup. Each cube is 1/2 cup. I'll change it on the recipe to make more clear.
