Popcorn Bars-sweet, salty and buttery combine for an easy treat, perfect for any occasion!
I’m not about celebrating my own birthday but when it comes to helping others celebrate, I’m all in. JOLLY TIME Pop Corn is turning 100 this month. One Hundred! I can’t even imagine being that old. For a family owned company that’s truly amazing. You can check out their full story here.
Popcorn has always been a go-to snack since I was a kid. I can remember popping it on the stove, making sure to not let it burn. It took some practice.
These days, my kids have it so easy. They can come in after school, just grab a microwave bag and in less than 5 minutes, they’re sitting in front of the TV, doing homework and sharing a few pieces of popcorn with the dog.
I’m happy to help JOLLY TIME celebrate their birthday. Popcorn is pretty much a given at any party. It’s an easy, no fuss snack that everyone loves. Just grab a handful and munch away.
If you’ve never made a marshmallow treat with popcorn, you’re missing out. It’s sweet salty combination is amazing.
Using the Blast-O-Butter popcorn makes it even better. It’s super buttery, and you can never have to much butter flavor. I like to dress things up a bit. With Sprinkles and other colorful things like M&Ms.
