Candied Mango and Mint Popcorn Squares

This is what happens when you come home and crave something sweet... you make popcorn bars. Trust me, they are worth it. And so delicious. But make sure you only eat one if you can.... oh k maybe two.... three??
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 canola oil
1/2 cup dried candied mango, diced
1/4 cup roughly chopped mint
1 cup cornnuts, salted
4 tbs butter, unsalted
2 cups marshmallows
Start by making your popcorn. If you don't usually make popcorn from scratch, you should. Its really easy and a lot healthier for you. Take a medium sized pot and pour the oil into it. Next, add the corn kernels. Cover with a lid. Once the popping stops, your popcorn is done.

Add the popcorn to a large bowl. Lightly salt it. Next, toss in the diced mango.

Add the chopped mint and the cornnuts. Mix thoroughly.

Once the dry ingredients are done and set aside, add the butter to the same pot you popped the corn in. Melt it all the way, then add the marshmallows on top.

Stir until the marshmallows are 90% melted down. I do like a few chunks in my popcorn squares. Once melted, pour over the popcorn.

Stir the mixture around quickly, making sure every popcorn kernel has a little bit of everything attached to it.

Next, form into a large rectangle, and then get into squares. And most importantly, enjoy :)
