Halloween Popcorn Treats

Vegetable cooking spray
3 Tbsp. cooking oil
1/3 c. popcorn kernels
3 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 c. (12 oz.) mini marshmallows
3 (3”) chocolate chip cookies, crumbled
1/3 c. chopped salted almonds
6 fun-size caramel peanut chocolate bars
(such as Snickers) cut into 1/4” pieces
1/2 c. orange and black chocolate candies (M&Ms)

Spray inside of large mixing bowl with cooking spray, and lightly spray baking sheet; set aside. In three-quart or larger heavy-bottomed pan, heat oil and popcorn over medium-high heat. Cover pan and shake gently. Cook until all kernels have popped, about three minutes. Place popcorn in prepared bowl. In medium saucepan heat butter over low heat. Add vanilla extract and marshmallows. Stir constantly until marshmallows have melted and mixture is smooth, about five minutes. Pour melted marshmallow mixture over popcorn. Using a spatula sprayed with cooking spray, stir until the popcorn is coated. Spread mixture over prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle with chocolate bar pieces, cookies, almonds and chocolate candies. Using spatula gently press toppings into popcorn. Allow mixture to dry for one hour. Break into 2-inch pieces and store airtight in plastic container. Place in small plastic bags and seal with colored ribbon if desired.
