When I was in middle school, I set a bag of popcorn on fire in my kitchen microwave while preparing an after school snack before heading to dance class. Probably needless to say, my parents were not exactly thrilled that the entire house smelled like burnt popcorn for like a week. And that I almost burned the kitchen down. I actually think the microwave shorted out? Which is probably the only thing that really saved us. Middle school and I couldn’t even handle the microwave… Ack.

I am so happy to say that I have come a long, long way since my middle school days. I now make popcorn on the stovetop, which would have been a serious danger back in the day. Canola oil and direct heat? Let’s just say, I never would have been left alone again. And though I may or may not have set a kitchen towel on fire a couple weeks ago (hey, I thought the burner was off when I threw the towel on the stove; honest mistake, guys), I haven’t actually caused any serious damage, aside from a hole burned into my towel.

I warned you there’d be more sprinkles. But you came back anyway, eh? Smart move because really, this recipe is about SO MUCH MORE than sprinkles. They’re really just there for looks. The real story is sweet and salty and everything in between. And by everything, I mean sprinkles, Oreos, and marshmallow. All piled into popcorn. Sprinkles and popcorn? Maybe not your typical perfect pairing, but they may be my new favorite thing in all the world. Also, perfect for Easter.

Can we talk about the fact that Wilton Candy Melts are also my new favorite thing in all the world? They sent me these Marshmallow ones, but then I bought 2 more bags at their headquarters this weekend (I also got their new Key Lime Candy Melts! And? They announced they’re coming out with caramel apple melts in the fall… omg) because they’re limited edition and I really don’t know how I’m going to live without them. They taste like the filling in an Oreo. And what do you know, they pair perfectly with actual Oreos.

  • 2 T canola oil (peanut oil works here, too)

I generally always follow the popcorn instructions on my popcorn kernel bag so as to avoid any disasters. Those instructions tell me to put my oil and popcorn kernels in a large pot and turn heat to medium-high. When the first kernel pops, cover the pot and remove it from the heat for about 30 seconds.

Then, put your pot back on the stove and once kernels start popping, vigorously shake the pot back and forth, keeping it on heat. Once popping slows, take pot off the heat and remove cover. Hurrah!

In the meantime, put your candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and put in the microwave for 1 minute at 40% heat. Stir mixture with a spoon and then repeat regimen at 30-second intervals, stirring in between each one, until fully melted. Hurrah again!

Put popcorn in a large bowl and drizzle marshmallow candy melts over it.

Then crumble Oreos over the top and sprinkle on plenty of fun sprinkles. Mix well.

Serve in a giant pastel mixing bowl and top with even more sprinkles if you’re into that kind of thing.

And you will never, ever eat savory popcorn again. OK, that’s not true because sometimes when you’re watching a movie you might crave a buttery, salty popcorn. Or perhaps one with extra tabasco and parmesan cheese (obsessed). But this dessert popcorn will shoot way up on your list of top popcorns in the world.

Because it’s awesome. And pretty to boot.

There isn’t much that an Oreo cookie doesn’t go with, but the Oreos COMBINED with the marshmallow candy melts made this so creamy and delightfully marshmallowy.

I ate  a lot of handfuls of this popcorn. Like, way too many. That’s why I brought a big container to my favorite co-workers.

Then, a travesty happened. I placed the Tupperware between two of my co-workers’ cubes and my they ate a few early morning handfuls before the container fell to the ground. This was the aftermath taken from Sammy’s Instagram:

RIP Oreo Marshmallow Funfetti Popcorn. Guess I’ll have to make you again soon, huh?

Tough life. But I think I can handle it.

What’s the best popcorn you ever had?

    That fallen popcorn made my eyes tear up. RIP indeed.
    Every spring my family and I scope out the street fairs in NYC. There is a kettle corn stand that makes pretty much any flavor of kettle corn you can imagine. I always tell myself I will buy a new flavor but I always look lovingly at the peanut butter and take it home with me! It gets me every time.
    This concoction looks AMAZING.

    Although I haven’t set a kitchen towel on fire, I have melted our microwave plate cover by setting it on a hot burner – whoops!

    Also, this popcorn looks amazing! I used the Marshmallow candy melts for popcorn a few weeks ago but never thought to add Oreos. YUM!

  5. So sad that the leftovers fell to the ground! 🙁 But this looks amazing – I love the combination of salty and sweet.

  6. Rachel says:

    This looks fantastic! I received a popcorn maker as a Christmas gift a few years ago and I don’t think I’m being too bold in saying that it was life changing…

  7. Oh my gosh, THIS. I’ve never made popcorn on the stove top, but I definitely need to try it now. Marshmallow and Oreo sounds so incredible, I think I’d even be eyeing up the poor kernels that fell on the ground! 😉

  8. Oh no popcorn plummeted to its death! The best popcorn I’ve had is chicago mix.

  9. Odetta says:

    The picture on the floor basically made me cry. This is too pretty and delicious to waste!

  10. Oh my gosh I want to faceplant in this! Sweet + salty is such an addictive snack!

  11. Anything with Oreo cookies is awesome. Unfortunately I eat popcorn with wild abandoned and Oreos if hey are anywhere in my reach—-which I make every effort to make sure they stay on the grocery store shelf. There would be NO leftovers to dive bomb to the floor in my house.
