One of my favorite things about Halloween is being able to use this day as an excuse to eat more dessert, good ol’ Halloween sweet treats. =) Sure you’ll be passing out candy to trick-or-treaters or to your child’s friends and classmates, but is that going to stop you from sneaking in a piece or two? Of course not, it’s Halloween!
If you’re in the giving mood and want to make treats for your family, friends, coworkers, or anyone else really, you definitely have plenty of options in terms of Halloween-themed food ideas. You can obtain inspiration from my Halloween Board, bake Halloween-themed cupcakes, follow my kid-friendly pumpkin recipes, or do an endless Google search for Halloween inspired dishes.
Today, I’d like to disclose to you a simple, quick, affordable, and SHAREABLE Halloween Sweet Treat called Marshmallow Popcorn Cake. This wonderful dessert is colorful, sweet, crunchy, sticky and most importantly, DELICIOUS. After trying a few bites, you may have to think twice before deciding whether you do in fact want to share this yummy dessert. =)
However, let’s set a good example for the kids and distribute this treat to others (but of course keep a secret stash for yourself!). Remember, sharing is caring. Give some to your child to bring to class, and in doing so, he may become the most popular kid in school! Or give some to your coworkers (and boss), and you may get a promotion! These results are not guaranteed, but however, people will definitely appreciate the gesture and absolutely love the Marshmallow Popcorn Cake.
- 2 bags of popcorn

Enjoy this ooey, gooey, yummy, sticky Halloween recipe and have a wonderful weekend!
