Lemon Marshmallow Popcorn Bars

Yellow is one of my favorite colors! It makes me think of daffodils and tulips in the spring. When we lived in Washington state, we would go to the tulip festival and see rows and ROWS of amazing flowers (see pics at the bottom of this post). Popcorn also makes me think of spring because it looks like those little white blossoms on trees. These treats are similar to the marshmallow rice cereal variety, but made with POPCORN! Skinny Pop Original Popcorn works great in this recipe (you can see their products here). I added in some lemon flavor with zest, mini lemon marshmallows, and crushed lemon candies. Yep, get your kids to pick out the yellow mini marshmallows from one of those multi colored bags. :) Once you've got the basic recipe down, you can change up the flavors too!

Lemon Marshmallow Popcorn Bars
3 TBSPs butter
1 TBSP lemon zest, packed (1 large lemon)
10 oz marshmallows
10 cups popcorn (I like Original Skinny Pop, see pic below)
2 cups yellow mini marshmallows (or whatever you can get from the bag of colored ones)
2 oz white almond bark or vanilla chips, melted
2 TBSPs crushed lemon candies (lemon drops or lemon heads)

1. In a large pot, melt butter over low heat until melted. Add lemon zest and marshmallows. Stir until marshmallows have completely melted. Remove from heat.
2. Stir in popcorn until mixed well and popcorn is covered with marshmallow mixture.
3. Add yellow mini marshmallows and stir to combine.
4. Press into greased 9x13 inch pan.
5. Drizzle melted almond bark over top and sprinkle on the lemon candy.
6. Cool and cut into squares.

Store covered at room temperature. Best served the same day.
