Reports field editor Flo Burtnett of Gage, Oklahoma, "Two sweet layers of butterscotch- and marshmallow-coated popcorn are held together with chocolate in these scrumptious bars."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings


  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 3 quarts popped popcorn


  • 1. In a microwave or double boiler, melt chocolate chips and shortening. Chill for 15-20 minutes or until thickened.
  • 2. Meanwhile, line a 9-in. square pan with foil; grease the foil and set pan aside. In a heavy saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Stir in marshmallows and butterscotch chips until melted and smooth.
  • 3. Place the popcorn in a large bowl; add marshmallow mixture and toss until coated. Firmly press half of the popcorn mixture into prepared pan. Spread chocolate mixture evenly over popcorn. Firmly press remaining popcorn mixture over chocolate.
