S’mores popcorn

Some things in this life go hand-in-hand, don’t you agree? For instance:

  • peanut butter & jelly
  • Mickey & Minnie
  • hugs & kisses

You might not know it, but like the aforementioned examples, popcorn has a natural counterpart. And no, it’s not that nasty movie theater butter imposter. It’s chocolate. Popcorn & chocolate are a match made in, well, a match made in the most clever of kitchens for sure. I recently thought I’d take it up a notch and try my hand at a S’mores popcorn snack. I’m happy to report that it was a huge hit with my people. And so easy.

Easy & Quick S'mores Popcorn Snack

You start by smothering freshly-popped popcorn in a gooey marshmallow coating. Toss in some cute little Teddy Graham snacks, some chocolate bits and maybe a few chocolate sprinkles just for fun. Voilà! You’ve got yourself one yummy snack.

I used these Hershey’s drops because I thought they lent the most authentic S’mores flavor. If you want to give this recipe a go, make sure you pick up a bag the next time you’re out shopping.

S’mores popcorn

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic popcorn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 8 oz. package Hershey's drops
  • 1 10 oz. package of marshmallows
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups Teddy Grahams
  • chocolate sprinkles, optional

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or Whirly-Pop. Add popcorn and cook until the popping sound stops. When the popcorn has finished popping, lay it out in a single layer on a sheet of wax paper. Pick out unpopped kernels and discard.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium heat. When butter has melted, add marshmallows and cook--stirring constantly--until the marshmallows are completely melted and no lumps remain. Add popcorn and Teddy Grahams to marshmallow mixture and stir well to completely coat the popcorn & Teddy Grahams in marshmallow.
  3. Once the marshmallow has cooled, toss in chocolate drop and chocolate sprinkles, if using.
  4. Stores well in an airtight container for up to three days.
