INGREDIENTS 

1 packet miniature marshmallows 

1 packet popcorn  

1/2 cup butter  

1/2 tsp vanilla essence 

1 bowl of vanilla ice cream  

1 bowl of berries  

1 packet MnMs  

1 tbsp chocolate drizzle   


METHOD 

Put the popcorn in the microwave, or put them in the stove. Either way, let the kernels pop!  

Melt butter in a pan, and add the marshmallows. Stir it all, do not put the mixture on extreme heat.  

Constantly stir the mixture until it is well combined. Add vanilla essence to enhance flavor.  

Allow the mixture to cool down. It has to become lukewarm, so it can start to thicken a little bit.  

Put the popcorn in a large bowl.  

Now alternate between adding the marshmallow mixture and more popcorn, so that all kernels have marshmallow coating.  

You can sprinkle some chocolate powder, MnMs, chocolate drizzle. 

Put ice cream in a bowl, along with the warmed berries and popcorn marshmallow balls.


Hungry already? Plan a movie night with your friends or family, and treat yourselves to these sundaes!
