Popcorn is one of life's most perfect foods. Delicious, healthy, low fat, low calorie, etc. etc. Of course, it tastes best when slathered in butter and such, rendering it rather less good for you, but more good to your tastebuds.
Magic Popcorn is an evolution of my grandma's popcorn balls & many "marshmallow popcorn" recipes I saw on Pinterest. Through trial and error I came up with this particular combination of sweet, gooey, and a little bit of spice. It has brought about more than one "ZOMG" and "wow" when shared with friends and family. Last night when I made this for a living room movie night, my mother-in-law declared "this is magic!" I hope you'll like it too. Fair warning: it's one of those recipes that is best enjoyed only occasionally as the butter and sugar content are pretty epic.
10-12 cups popcorn (fresh popped is best, but if you must use microwave, it's about 2 bags)
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
5-7 cups mini marshmallows (depending on your gooiness preference - I'm a fan of the goo)
1 tsp. cinnamon
If you have 2 bowls available, separate the popcorn into 2 parts. If not, 1 will work fine, too.
If you have it in 2 bowls, pour over half, then add the rest of the popcorn to the first bowl and pour over the rest.
Mix, mix, mix, mix, mix!
