The Spring season is finally here and slowly but surely the weather is beginning to catch up with it. To celebrate I decided to come up with 5 fun Spring treats that you can easily make at home. For this tasty post I'll be showing you how to make delicious Popcorn Caramel Pops. Let me start off by saying that I've wanted to make caramel popcorn balls for some years now but making my own caramel can be a little daunting much when you're trying to make a quick snack so I decided to stick to marshmallows. In a twist of culinary fate I'd accidentally overcook my marshmallow until it reached a beautiful brown color with an amazing caramel flavor. I tasted it and my entire face lit up - it was like Christmas morning. With that said, let's get into it.

Marshmallow Caramel Pops
1 1/2 c marshmallows
3 c popcorn lightly salted
2 tbsp butter
Spring Candy ( I used Spring candy corn)
1/2 c chocolate chips
3 tbsp candy melt (pink or another Spring inspired color)
1. In a large pot, add the mini marshmallows and butter. Melt down the marshmallow while stirring constantly to prevent sticking and burning. Continue to cook the marshmallow until it reaches a light brown caramel color. Immediately remove from the heat and continue to stir.
2. Add in popcorn and stir to coat. Lastly add in candies and chocolate chips. Spray hands with a nonstick spray if needed and form large popcorn balls.Then stick with a paper straw and set aside.
3. Lastly, melt down the candy melt or colored chocolate and drizzle over the popcorn pops. Before the candy melt hardens use this time to add any extra candies to the outside. Allow to completely set for about 30 minutes and enjoy!
