Soft Caramel Popcorn

So here is a super easy recipe for yummy, soft caramel popcorn that I have made many, many times through the years. I first got it from April at Making Ends Meet. Try it! You'll love it too!
2 sticks of butter (now you know it's got to be good with that much butter)
1 cup of Brown sugar
33 large marshmallows
2 bags of popped microwave popcorn - we used 3 because this recipe makes a lot of caramel topping.

Melt the butter, sugar and marshmallows and pour over the popcorn in a huge bowl. Just a tip, if you do use microwave popcorn rather than popping your own, make sure to scoop the popcorn out of the bag rather than pouring it out into the bowl. There were a lot of little kernels that got mixed in and once they were covered with caramel, they were hard to spot.
