Author: Barbara Schieving


  • 1 bag 3 ounces microwave popcorn (I used Smart Pop with less butter and salt)
  • ½ cup salted cashew nuts
  • ½ cup miniature marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cups Light Corn Syrup
  • ½ cup Hershey’s Chocolate Spread


  • Pop the bag of popcorn and pour the popped corn out onto a baking sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper. Remove any unpopped kernels. Mix in nuts and marshmallows.
  • In a large microwave-safe bowl, microwave butter, sugar, and corn syrup, stirring every 30 seconds. When mixture comes to a full boil, mix in chocolate spread until well combined. Dollop chocolate mixture evenly over the popcorn. Using a spatula, toss the popcorn to coat it with the chocolate mixture.
