Fruity Marshmallow Crunch - salty, sweet, and quick to make!


  1. Microwave a bag of popcorn and spread the popcorn out on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the marshmallows in 20 second intervals, stirring in between. Note: the marshmallows will expand so make sure your bowl is large enough. Also, the bowl will be HOT.
  3. When they are fully melted, stir in 2 tablespoons of water. This makes the melted marshmallow pourable.
  4. Pour the melted marshmallow over the popcorn as seen in the video (use a spoon to help)
  5. Sprinkle over your desired amount of Fruity Pebbles cereal.
  6. Enjoy!
