Marshmallow-Popcorn Hearts

Marshmallow-Popcorn HeartsTwo kid favorites—marshmallows and popcorn—double up to make this Valentine treat.

Recipe Ingredients:

10 cups popped popcorn
3 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 (10-ounce) package regular marshmallows
Red food coloring
Red colored sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Place popped popcorn in a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan and keep warm in a 300°F (150°C) oven while making marshmallow mixture (remove unpopped kernels).
  2. In a large saucepan melt margarine or butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. (Or, in a microwave-safe bowl, micro-cook margarine and marshmallows on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until margarine or butter is melted and marshmallows are softened, carefully stirring once.) Stir until smooth. Stir in red food coloring. Stir in popped popcorn, half at a time. Cool until easy to handle (10 to 15 minutes).
  3. Press mixture into greased individual heart-shaped pans. Cool. Remove from pans. Sprinkle with red colored sugar. Wrap each heart in plastic wrap.

Makes 9 hearts.
