Marshmallow-Popcorn Hearts (RT)

A cute and fun recipe that your kids can help you with.

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

1. Place popped popcorn in a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan and keep warm in a 300 degree F 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.


You can buy Strawberry flavored marshmallows now that you could use in place of plain ones.
To make things quick Reynolds Wrap has new shaped tins in heart shapes that you could use. These taste good and the kids will love them if they like popcorn.
