Funfetti Popcorn

A pre-scheduled post...

As I type on this snowy April day, I'm quite annoyed at the stupid bag of funfetti popcorn that I made.  Some of it got more caramel-y marshmallow-y sauce on it than other parts.  So I'm digging through the bag, picking out the chewy stuff, ruining my dinner and my teeth.  


If you're going to make this, just...share it.  Please. I threw the bag across the room.  Scott found it and finished it off.  Teamwork is important.

Funfetti Popcorn
inspired by this recipe

1 T. butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup vanilla or cream cheese frosting
1/2 cup powdered cake mix (white, yellow, or funfetti)
1 t. vanilla
2 T. corn syrup
2 cups mini marshmallows


1 bag popped popcorn (Pour the popped popcorn into a bowl, and then put the popped kernels into another, bigger, bowl to separate the unpopped kernels...does that make sense? You do not want to chomp down on an unpopped kernel. Speaking from experience. Twice.)

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and corn syrup together.  It doesn't have to boil or anything.  Stir in the cake mix and frosting.  Once combined, add in the marshmallows.  Stir well and let them melt.  When the mixture is nice and smooth, pour it over the popped popcorn and fold with a spatula to coat.  Decorate with sprinkles.  Serve warm or store in an airtight container once cooled.


  1. yum!! I made a popcorn recipe and didn't take out the kernels. my dad broke his tooth. i felt terrible and learned my lesson!

  2. Oh good gracious that looks amazing.

  3. That looks great! I made a caramel marshmallow popcorn thing the other day and it was fantastic.

  4. I'm not big on marshmallows (I'm sure that's tragic news for you to hear), but this sounds so yummy! :)
