Expert Tips

Approximately 1 1/2 bags of microwave popcorn will give you 8 cups of popped corn.

Marshmallow mixture can be melted in the microwave in 1-minute intervals, stirring in between to prevent overcooking.

Nuts, coconut, dried fruit and other treats can be folded into the mixture after you add the marshmallow to the cookie-popcorn mix.

Four or five popcorn pops can be placed in a coffee mug to give as a gift.
