  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 cups 12-ounces mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup chocolate candy bars (such as Twix, Snickers, Kit Kat's, etc chopped into 1/4\" pieces)
  • 1/3 cup chopped salted almonds
  • 1/2 cup orange and black chocolate candies (such as M&,Ms or Reese's Pieces)


  1. Spray the inside of a large mixing bowl with vegetable cooking spray, and lightly spray a baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. In a 3 quart or larger, heavy-bottomed pan, heat the oil and popcorn over medium-high heat. Cover the pan and shake gently. Cook until all the kernels have popped, about 3 minutes. Place the popcorn in the prepared bowl.
  3. In a medium saucepan, heat the butter over low heat. Add the vanilla extract and marshmallows. Stir constantly until the marshmallows have melted and the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Pour the melted marshmallow mixture over the popcorn. Using a spatula, sprayed with cooking spray, stir until the popcorn is coated. Spread the mixture over the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with the chocolate bar pieces, almonds and chocolate candies. Using a spatula, gently press the toppings into the popcorn. Allow the mixture to dry for 1 hour.
  4. Pull apart into 2-inch pieces and store airtight in a plastic container.
