Orange Creamsicle Popcorn

Well if you cant tell I have been slacking a little. This is my season for craziness. My boys have started baseball so I dont get a lot of time to do things besides running boys alllll over!!! I hope you will stick it out with me through the craziness of my summer! I will keep posting but it will only be about 1x a week! :)

Ok I will admit when my sis first sent me this recipe I kind of pulled a face and thought really orange flavored popcorn??? Orange is not one of my favorite flavors of anything HOWEVER THIS STUFF ROCKED!!!!!!! I couldnt believe how yummy it was!! I however did use microwave popcorn which was about 4 bags :)

Orange Creamsicle Popcorn (Cooking Classy)

1 cup unpopped popcorn kernals
1/2 cup butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup cream
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 tsp salt
1 Tbsp orange zest
4 cups miniature marshmallows
1 tsp orange extract

Directions: Pop popcorn into two very large mixing bowls, set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sweetened condensed milk, cream, sugar, salt and orange zest. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil mixture one and a half minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add in marshmallows and stir until melted. Mix in orange extract. Divide warm mixture evenly over two bowls of popcorn and toss with a spatula to coat. Allow to rest 20 minutes to set.

For an alternate method:

She also made this popcorn in a dry version. Omit the cream, then when you stir in marshmallows also stir in 1/3 cup white chocolate chips.
