  1. Add 1-2 Tablespoons of oil to the bottom of a large stockpot. You can use vegetable oil, coconut oil or even butter. If we’re wanting more of a movie theater type popcorn, we will use the Popcorn Popping Oil, but it isn’t a must.
  2. Heat the oil over medium-high heat and add a couple of popcorn kernels to the bottom of the pan. Add the lid.
  3. Once the popcorn begins to pop you know your pan is ready! Add the rest of the popcorn kernels, replace the lid and move the pan continuously over the burner. Periodically shaking the pan so that you can move the kernels around and prevent burning.
  4. Pay close attention to the sound of the popping popcorn. Once you notice a significant drop in the amount of kernels popping, remove from heat. They’re done!

Everyone loves this caramel marshmallow popcorn when I make it! It is easy to make a double batch if you need it for a party. If you happen to end up with any leftovers, store them in an airtight container.

We like to enjoy caramel marshmallow popcorn when it is still warm, because it is ooey and gooey. But if you end up with leftovers, it is good or a couple of days in an airtight container or ziploc bag.
