I have almost forgotten about this memory maker recipe. I can't find the actual recipe, I brought it home from school one day and so it became a yearly Christmas tradition for me and my mom to make this wonderful edible little popcorn tree. My keikis (children) faintly remember this Christmas Tree, only because I stopped making it when my mom decided to leave.
I am re-writing this recipe from memory and I hope that it is correct.

  1. In a large pot, melt the butter and marshmallows.
  2. Spread the popcorn out on a jelly roll pan and drizzle all the melted marshmallow over it. Toss it a little so that the popcorn is all coated.
  3. Mound the popcorn onto a Christmas serving platter and mold the popcorn into a large cone.
  4. Work quickly to shape the cone as it will become more difficult to mold it as it cools down.
  5. With all the colorful candies, you can stick them onto the popcorn tree or use toothpick to decorate the tree.
  6. Don't forget to put the last and most important candy on the top of the tree, use a lollipop.
