Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Prepare cake batter and bake as directed on package for 24 cupcakes. Cool in pans 15 min. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Frost cupcakes with COOL WHIP.
  • Squeeze 2 marshmallow halves unevenly together to resemble a popped popcorn kernel; place on top of cupcake. Repeat with enough of the remaining marshmallow halves to cover top of cupcake. (You will need to use about 30 marshmallow halves for each cupcake.) Repeat with remaining marshmallows and cupcakes. Keep refrigerated.

Special Extra

Top cupcakes with marshmallows as directed. Stir 5 drops yellow food coloring into 1/2 cup water; brush lightly onto marshmallows to resemble buttered popcorn.

How to Make Caramel Popcorn

Top cupcakes with marshmallows as directed. Microwave 16 KRAFT Caramels and 2 Tbsp. water in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 min.; stir until smooth. Drizzle lightly over marshmallow-topped cupcakes to resemble caramel corn.

Serving Suggestion

Before filling paper baking cups with cake batter, color them with red and white stripes to resemble popcorn bags. Tape a small "popcorn" label to each cupcake liner before serving.

    This was a HUGE hit! I made these cupcakes for my daughter's 12th birthday party. We did a movie theme and they were loved by all. They were easy to make and looked better than I thought they would. Fabulous!!
