I think we’ve established by now that I love Peeps.
Start by cooking your popcorn. (I actually prefer to make stovetop popcorn – tastes so much better!). Remove any unpopped kernels. If you prefer the microwave kind, be sure to get the crispy white or tender white, NOT the buttered flavors, which just get soggy.
Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat and add the Peeps. Stir them until they are melted and the mixture is nice and smooth. Keep stirring while they are melting, or the sugar will scorch. I have to tell you, if you love Peeps, this part might make you a little sad. It’s kind of like watching the witch in the wizard of Oz – “I’m melllttting!”
Pour the melted mixtures over your popcorn and gently stir with a silicone spoon. Pour the sticky popcorn out on waxed paper to cool. Be careful – the marshmallow gets very hot and can result in burned fingers! Not that I would know anything about that. Spread the popcorn out to cool and then break into chunks, or form popcorn balls.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container. If you actually have any leftover.
