Popcorn Krunch

I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website. Its really easy to make because it only has 3 ingredients. The original name for this yummy snack was 3-Ingredient Snack Mix. Sounds boring. So I asked hubby to name it and he came up with Popcorn Crunch.

This snack is reminiscent of a Rice Krispies treat and is very addicting. Once you start it, you can't stop eating it. We're heading out of town this weekend and I decided to make this to munch on for the road trip. But I'm not so sure it'll last until then.

6 cups prepared, light-buttered popcorn
4 cups Chex cereal (Wheat, Rice or Corn)
1 jar marshmallow fluff

1) Preheat oven to 350 deg F. Grease a cookie sheet. Combine popcorn and cereal in a large bowl. Set aside.

2) Microwave marshmallow in another bowl and heat on high for about a minute. Stir and continue microwaving for another minute until melted. Stir again. Pour over popcorn mixture and combine until evenly distributed. Spread mixture evenly on cookie sheet.

3) Bake for 5 minutes. Stir and continue baking, while stirring every 5 minutes until marshmallow turns lightly brown, about 15 minutes. Spread over wax paper or aluminum foil and completely cool. Once cooled, break up the large chunks into smaller pieces and store in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
