ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Marshmallow Popcorn Bars (by Michelle)

If you are bored of regular Rice Krispy Treats and want to mix things up a little bit, this is a variation. You use popcorn instead of Rice Krispies. It is a little messier to make, and it is a little harder to make sure that all of the popcorn is coated equally with the marshmallows. In the end though, it is very tasty, and my kids loved it. I can imagine using food coloring, or throwing in other ingredients to jazz it up a little more as well.Marshmallow Popcorn Bars
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for the dish
1/2 cup popcorn kernels or one 3.5 ounce package plain microwave popcorn
1 10 ounce bag marshmallows

1. Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish. Pop the popcorn according to the package directions.

2. Melt the butter and marshmallows in a large saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring until smooth, 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Fold in the popcorn until coated. Press into the prepared dish and let sit for 10 minutes before cutting into 24 bars.

Tip: The bars are best served within 6 hours but can be made and stored at room temperatuire, covered, up to 1 day in advance. (The longer they sit, the harder they will get, so fresher is MUCH better).
