Spending time in the kitchen is something that has always come naturally to me. From the time I was a kid, no older than eight I would imagine, I would whip up "recipes" in the kitchen pretending I was on a cooking show. Of course, my "recipes" consisted of a mixture of flour, sugar, salt, water, and sometimes hot chocolate mix. What can I say, cooking is in my veins.
As I’ve grown, my skills have improved. Although, there was that one time I accidentally made peanut butter dog treats. In case you’d rather make cookies, please remember to add the eggs and the milk to the recipe. My dog had never been happier.
Now that I’m in my 30s and I have much more home cooking knowledge under my belt I’m proud to say that I’m a self-proclaimed master in the kitchen. Since today is Little Miss’s birthday – CAN YOU BELIEVE SHE’S FOUR?! – I decided to make a super messy, kid-friendly treat I knew she’d love.
If you’ve got little ones at home I strongly encourage you to make this fun treat with them. You get to bond, share the joy of cooking, and revel in your kitchen prowess. I made a trip to Walmart, hit up the cleaning aisle where I picked up my supplies, and then went to work.
I decided to gear these bars towards my niece’s birthday but you could swap out the candy for anything you prefer. Someone please make these with Rolos and report back! Feel free to print this recipe!
Marshmallow Popcorn Bars
What you need:
1 Tbs. butter
4 c. popcorn
1 c. graham crackers
½ c. chocolate candies
2 Tbs. sprinkles (optional)
What you do:
Spray an 8"x8" (9”x9” will also work) baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl melt butter. Add the marshmallows, stirring to coat evenly and microwave for 1 minute. Stir until smooth then add the and graham crackers. Transfer the entire mixture to the baking pan and press the chocolate candy randomly into the surface of the bars, add sprinkles. Let cool for about 10 minutes, slice and serve. Store remaining bars in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
If there’s one universal fact behind cooking it’s that anything with marshmallow = mess. As messy as these bars were to make, taking care of the mess was a breeze thanks to Palmolive® Fusion Clean™.
Tell me, what’s the messiest thing you’ve ever made, and how did you clean it up?
