Baking: Popcorn Shed Squares

Popcorn Shed and marshmallow cookie squares

We still get the same old question from time to time… “oh your blog’s called Food & Baker, what’ve you baked recently?”, and the same resounding answer of “nothing” surprises every time. So, we thought we’d give the people what they want (or maybe just expect) and create these cookie and marshmallow based bites (recipe below). With the chance to work with artisan popcorn maker, Popcorn Shed, we had the perfect opportunity to create something special, aesthetically and in taste.

Popcorn Shed is run by Laura and Sam, cousins who still run this home grown, family based British brand which breaks the mould of the typical popcorn brand you’d see on supermarket shelves.

All of their variants are gluten free, vegetarian with ingredients of the finest, natural quality and follow a made to order cooking process – it comes from Laura and Sam’s garden shed and definitely doesn’t come from a mass produced factory!

Across our square bites we sprinkled on 3 of their 7 flavours – Salted Caramel, Butterly Nuts and Pecan Pie (most were devoured before it had barely seen the light of day from the package that arrived on our doorstep). At 120ish calories per packet, we also avoided the guilt trip of enjoying such delicious treats, although yes, perhaps that was compensated by the cookies and marshmallows.

These treats were perfect for sharing with our housemates and with a couple of packets left over, we cannot wait to finish them off in front of the TV screen tonight.

Give it a go with the recipe below!

    Oh my god! I recently tried these out from Popcorn Shed too! I actually finished the last packet a couple of days ago, which is a bit gutting which I’d seen this first so I could have tried this. Will definitely have to go out and get some more to give this a go!

    Oooh, these popcorn shed squares look delicious! Pretty cool that there are different types of Popcorn Shed popcorns. I know I’d appreciate the caramel flavors. I love that these squares are easy to prepare. Big plus that it is fast to make as well. I might make this for the next potluck. Thanks for sharing!
