This Monster Halloween Popcorn is so delicious and can be made in five minutes. Marshmallow popcorn topped with Halloween sprinkles and candy eyeballs. It’s the perfect Halloween treat for a movie night!
Hello hello! It’s been such a busy month that I feel like I blinked and it is already over. It’s cool, though. I am super excited for Halloween and carrying on some of our favorite traditions.
Yesterday I decided to whip up a Halloween treat with my daughter. My toddler thought this Monster Marshmallow Popcorn was absolutely hilarious and she loved adding the candy eyeballs.

I like really simple recipes like this. I also love to bake. Mummy Brownies or Spider Cookies are some of our faves, but sometimes you need a treat that takes less than 5 minutes to make. Ya know!? Plus, what is more perfect for a movie night than popcorn! Hocus Pocus, anyone?
Halloween Marshmallow Popcorn Recipe
- Brown Sugar
- Candy Eyeballs
Cover counter or cookie sheets with wax paper.
Spread popped popcorn onto wax paper, and remove any un-popped kernels.
Put butter, marshmallows and brown sugar into a large microwavable bowl.
Melt marshmallows, butter and sugar for 1 minute. Stir to combine, and then microwave in 30 second increments and stir, until it’s completely melted.
- Add butter, marshmallows and brown sugar to a large saucepan.
- Melt over medium-low heat, stirring often, until mixture is melted completely.
Pour marshmallow mixture over the popcorn on the cookie sheets and mix.
Add Halloween sprinkles and candy eyeballs.
I mixed some pink and white sprinkles in with the regular Halloween mix that I bought. I love pink and so do my two little girls, it just made this popcorn a little more ‘us!’
I love Sprinkles. They make everything more fun! Do you call them Sprinkles or Jimmies? I hear that’s a thing in some parts…

This is by far, the best Monster Popcorn recipe that I’ve found online! It only requires ingredients that most of us already have in our home…unlike other recipes I’ve found for the same concept. I began making it for my daughter last year, and we’ve made it at least 8 times since! 😁🎃💜
Oh my gosh that makes us so happy! We are glad you love it, thanks so much for letting us know!
So glad you like it! It’s a family fave.
This is such a fun, easy treat!
