1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 16oz bag mini marshmallows
24 cups popped popcorn (about 3 microwave bags)
1 cup white baking chips
Pop the popcorn. Sift out the unpopped kernels and place into a large buttered roasting pan. (I sift mine out by pouring the popcorn into a large bowl and then using my hands to put it into the roaster. All the kernels usually fall to the bottom of the bowl.)
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the brown sugar and continually stir with a wooden spoon, until the sugar is dissolved and a little bubbly (this takes just a couple minutes). Add the marshmallows and stir constantly until they are almost all the way melted.
Pour over the popcorn. Stir the marshmallow mixture into the popcorn (kind of like rice krispy treats). Sprinkle the white baking chips over the mixture and stir again. Serve immediately or cover.
So my dearest celiac daughter has this problem with school parties. See, they always have cupcakes or cookies, things full of gluten that she can't eat. This is a treat that will keep her happy and her tummy happy. Plus, pretty much all kids like it. It can be put into individual bags or made into popcorn balls, although always remember to butter your hands before you try handling it. Yum.
