Sweet N’ Salty Party Popcorn

Sweet and Salty is the perfect combination! Salty Cashews with sweet mini marshmallows and M&M's. Perfect for snacking on during the game!

Welcome 2015!

It’s my first recipe of the New Year and I’m kicking it off with this quick and easy, sweet and salty popcorn made from the new “Party Popcorn” book written by my blogging friend, Ashton. Ashton is the blogger, author, and photographer at Something Swanky and her new book, Party Popcorn: 75 Creative Recipes for Everyone’s Favorite Snack is available to purchase on Amazon.

This party popcorn is easy to make for the whole family on movie night. Sweet and Salty Party Popcorn!

Everyone loves popcorn for snacking on. We make it quite often for movie night and sleepover parties. I love using my Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper to make a big batch. It pops 99% of the kernels and the popcorn is always delicious. 

We are preferable to basic popcorn with just salt. No butter or seasoning, just plain ‘ol popped popcorn. It’s a special occasion to make “fun” popcorn. My daughter had some friends over and I asked them to pick out their favorite fun popcorn for me to make and for them to eat!

Popcorn mixed with Salty Cashews, Sweet mini marshmallows and M and M's and tossed with butter. A quick and easy snack!
The girls picked the “quick marshmallow mix popcorn”. I was surprised they didn’t go for the “turtle brownie” or the “heavenly hash” or even the “chocolate covered pretzel popcorn”. There are 75 different fun popcorn recipes in this book! They range from sweet to savory and they all sound great for a Sunday football game snack!
I can see this fun mix on the table with team colored M&M’s mixed in.  I know you want some – so DIG IN!

Dig in to a big bowl of popcorn! Sweet and Salty Popcorn for the win for your next snack attack!
Want your own copy of the book and a Whirly Pop Popper? Ashton is giving away the book and I’m throwing in the popper (or $20 Amazon Gift Card if you already have a favorite popper).
