- 2 T unsalted butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2/3 cup marshmallows
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2-4 drops green food coloring
- 12 cups plain popped popcorn
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, butter, powdered sugar, marshmallows, salt, and vanilla.
Stir frequently until mixture comes to a boil.
Add 2-4 drops of green food coloring (depending on how dark you want the color to be) and stir well.
