Recipe for popcorn snacks

Several mentioned the popcorn bars that I was going to make so here is the recipe:

They're called popcorn snacks

1/2 cup real butter

1-16oz bag mini marshmallows

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 t. real vanilla

1/2 t. salt

6 qts. white popcorn

1-16 oz. bag M&M's

1-16 oz. jar lightly salted peanuts

In a pan melt butter, oil and marshmallows on low heat

Stir in vanilla and salt

In BIG bowl combine popcorn, M&M's and peanuts

Pour mixture over it and mix

Press in two 9X13 pans

Cool and cut

Will be a bit sticky but is yummy. Make sure you use the biggest pan you have as that's a lot of popcorn and you need to be able to stir all of the mixture into it. I tried doing half first and then the other half and that doesn't work as well. I have a big turkey roaster that I used the next time and that worked well.

Makes a lot so is good for pot luck suppers.
