Scale

Ingredients

For the Marshmallow Coating:

  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 12 large marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

For the Mix:

  • 8 cups popped popcorn (I use and ADORE this air popper)
  • 2 cups mini pretzels
  • 2 cups cereal of choice (I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch)
  • 1 cup salted nuts of choice, lightly chopped (I used macadamia nuts)
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup M&M candies
  • ½ cup jellybeans
  • 1 tablespoon rainbow sprinkles

Instructions

For the Marshmallow Coating:

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and corn syrup and cook, stirring constantly, until melted and combined, about 2 minutes. Add the marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla and salt.

For the Mix:

  1. In a large bowl, toss together the popcorn, pretzels, cereal, and nuts. Spread the mixture out in an even layer on two large baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  2. Carefully pour the marshmallow coating over the mixture, coating it as evenly as possible. Gently toss with a spatula until everything is evenly coated.
  3. Once the mixture has mostly cooled, add the marshmallows, chocolate chips, and candies. Sprinkle everything with sprinkles and toss to coat.
  4. Store the snack mix in an airtight container for up to a week. It should stay soft and slightly gooey.
