Although the recipe calls for adding all of the melted marshmallow mixture, how much you add is really up to you. Just make sure you reserve some for the final steps – the candy will need something to stick to.
How Long Will Witches’ Brew Popcorn Last?
My family absolutely LOVES this popcorn so it doesn’t last long. And while it definitely tastes the best right after it is made, Witches’ Brew Halloween Popcorn will keep for a few days in an airtight container. Just keep in mind that the popcorn will be a little chewier because it absorbs some of the moisture from the marshmallow mixture – but it still tastes great!
