AN OOEY AND GOOEY, EASY AND DELICIOUS S’MORES-INSPIRED SNACK
I cannot express to you enough how deep my obsession with s’mores is. I honestly can’t get enough and am super excited to share one of my favorite (and super messy) sweet snacks. My favorite of my smores inspired snacks is this s’mores popcorn!
If you are joining me from Sarah’s blog at The Love we Give, WELCOME! Moscow Mules are another love of mine, and this Holiday Cranberry Mule Cocktail is so dang good! My name is Morgan and I am DIYing my own home renovation. I aim to inspire others to DIY and learn to create their dream home themselves.
One thing that a lot of you may not know, is that I also love to cook and bake. I don’t have a ton of recipes on this site, but the ones I do post, I’m obsessed with them.
This might be the easiest recipe of them all.
- Milk chocolate chips/M&Ms
- Mini Marshmallows
- Cookie Sheet
- Aluminum Foil
- Large bowl
I don’t typically measure it out, I just eyeball it but these are rough estimates.
This is where I’m going to lose some of you, but I promise that I won’t lead you astray!
Don’t go overboard with the chocolate. *gasp* I can’t believe I just said that. I know you’re upset with me because I can hear you saying “Morgan, what are you talking about? You can never go overboard with chocolate!”
In fact, I try to stick with plainer popcorn for this recipe because it can easily become too decadent and sweet. As is with a delicious s’mores, its about striking balance.
Some people love a perfectly browned single marshmallow atop 3 tiny Hershey’s chocolates in their Graham Crackers. Other people, LIKE ME, prefer 2 charred marshmallows atop 2 tiny Hershey’s chocolates.
Grab a cookie sheet and set the oven to broil.
Pop the popcorn. Sounds easy enough!
Spread the freshly popped popcorn evenly across the cookie sheet. BUT BEWARE OF KERNALS. This might be the most important step! Remove all the kernels you can find because biting into gooey chocolate wonderfulness and cracking a tooth on a kernel is not what we are here for today.
Evenly spready mini marshmallows across top of popcorn and place under broiler.
Watch closely and remove when adequately browned. I typically char my s’mores but I don’t recommend pursuing that course with this smores popcorn recipe.
Once you’ve removed your tray, sprinkle with chocolate chips and/or M&Ms. Use the aluminum foil to transfer concoction to the large bowl. I usually allow the popcorn to fold on itself a little to really mix the chocolate in. Because the marshmallow is now warm, the chocolate will become melty.
Like I said, I’m obsessed with s’mores and this s’mores popcorn recipe is so delicious! This is almost like a popcorn version of rice crispy treats that you eat while warm! It becomes harder to eat the longer it sits. Be warned, this is ooey and gooey and you and your friends/family/children will have marshmallow-y hands!
If you wish to eat in a less messy way, maybe eat it using a pair of tongs?
