with all the big holidays here, the dishes are elaborate, the pressure is more in the person than the cooker and usually stress takes over as the main dish. if you're looking for something a little more easy-going, try out this sweet popcorn dish.
not only are the ingredients minimal, but the method is also simple. this would be a fun recipe to make with your little pilgrims and elves if you have them.
start by popping two big bags of your favorite microwavable popcorn. resist sitting down with a bag of it on the sofa and popping in a video. now, get out of your time machine and resist plopping on your sofa with your bag of popcorn and some instant streaming. either way, save the two popcorn bags for the remainder of the recipe. go ahead and pour them both in a big ol' bowl.
now, in a microwave safe dish, mix together about 20 marshmallows, 1 stick of butter, and 3/4 cups of brown sugar.
melt it all together in one minute increments in the microwave. stir between each minute. once it is melted and smooth, you are ready to add in 1/4 cup peanut butter.
with the mixture still hot and smooth, pour it over your popcorn and stir, stir, stir. you can only imagine how quickly something as sticky as peanut butter and marshmallows could turn into a hard mess. yours won't. i have faith in you. now, go ahead and taste how utterly delicious this popcorn is. if you're feeling overtly thankful or jolly, go forth and share.
