Peeps Popcorn!

*Another facebook find!!*

Cook your popcorn and remove any unpopped kernels. If you prefer the microwave kind, be sure to get the plain, NOT the buttered  as they will just get soggy.
Melt the 3 tbsp butter in a saucepan over low heat. Swirl the pan to coat. Add the Peeps and turn heat to medium, stirring until the marshmallows are melted and the mixture is nice and smooth. Keep stirring while they are melting, or the sugar will scorch.
Pour the melted mixtures over your popcorn and gently stir with a silicone spoon.
Dump the sticky popcorn out on waxed paper to cool. Be careful - the marshmallow gets very hot and can result in burned fingers!
At this point you can spread the popcorn out to cool and then break into chunks, or form popcorn balls.

 Peeps come in so many pretty spring colors. I made several small batches for a colorful assortment. If you don't pop on the stove, like me, one bag of microwave popcorn yields around 12-14 cups of popped popcorn, and therefore five to seven batches of sticky, yummy, gooeyness.
