Popcorn Bars - Delicious bars made from popcorn, marshmallows, peanuts and M&Ms. Everybody loves this yummy treat!

Hi, it’s me Lily again.

Right now I’m super hungry because of this delicious, mouth-watering picture right above!! Before we talk about this recipe – did you have a good week? I did. My cousin, Hannah, got to spend the night last night and then she babysat this morning while mom and dad went on a date. She’s 15, and I love spending time with her. 😉

I also love spending time with mom in the kitchen making yummy recipes like these Popcorn Bars. They are filled with Popcorn, M&Ms and peanuts!! We ended up popping 1 bag of butter popcorn and 1 bag of Kettle corn and mixed them together. It was perfect!! Everybody liked these so much that they wanted a second one. I actually wanted a third but mom said no. 😀

So, if your mouth is watering looking at these pictures, then I think you should try this recipe. Here it is…
