S'mores Popcorn

Why s'mores?

Back in the winter, my daughter picked out a box of cocoa mix with "extra marshmallows." For months I thought I'd been ripped off because there were no marshmallows at all in the cocoa packets. I felt like such an idiot last week when I pulled out a packet of mix only to find it was labeled "just marshmallows." Since I have an appreciation for all things sugar, it's hard to throw out packets of tiny marshmallows. Instead, I chose to add them to my other favorites (popcorn and chocolate) to make S'mores Popcorn!

5 stars from 1 rating of S'mores Popcorn

Ingredients

  • 3 cups popcorn, popped
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocholate chips
  • 1 graham cracker
  • 1 packet cocoa mix marshmallows, (marshmallow pack only)
  • 1 plastic sandwich bag
  • 1 sheet wax paper

Marshmallow options

Did you know you can buy a jar of mini marshmallows without having to buy the hot cocoa packs? It's true! The jarred marshmallows are the same size as those packed in boxes of cocoa.

Prefer a fluffier marshmallow? Use a bag of miniatures for your s'mores popcorn. Make it chunkier by breaking pieces of graham crackers instead of crumbing them into powder. You may have to increase your chocolate to make the larger pieces stick together. (But there's never such a thing as too much chocolate, right?)

      I know it's crazy. I'll probably end up spending a day of doing nothing but finding uses for all those leftover marshmallow packs! I'm pretty sure it's against the law to throw away perfectly good marshmallows ;D
