I would say FriYAY…but to be perfectly honest, I have no idea what day today is. Yesterday felt like the weekend because Peter was home, today he’s not, so if you ask me, it is Monday. Jeez!!
This idea came about by Matti Jane. We had talked about watching the new Disney movie Onward and had also talked about doing actual s’mores outside that evening, but the night got a little too chilly. So Matti Jane thought to combine the two – popcorn + s’mores = the perfect at home movie dessert.
We had all the ingredients for traditional outdoor s’mores which I thought was perfect. Then, before we made it, I decided to check out a couple recipes on Pinterest just to be on top of my game. Come to find out, most of the S’more Popcorn recipes use different types of ingredients – Golden Grahams cereal, chocolate chips or candy melts and Marshmallow Creme. Literally almost all of the recipes that came up on Pinterest, called for these 3 ingredients that I did not have. We truly only had the ingredients to make traditional s’mores + the popcorn. So, we improvised and they turned out GREAT!!
First, we put the graham crackers in a huge baggee and Shay went to town.
Chandler was tasked with breaking the chocolate apart before we melted it. Matti Jane did a great job of supervising 😉
While the chocolate was melting in the microwave (in 30 second increments), we added the popcorn, the marshmallows and the crushed graham crackers together.
Once the chocolate was melted, it was time for the fun!! This was Matti Jane’s job…she was so excited!!
Shay started the stirring.
Ta Da!!! The end result is DELICIOUS!!! I will say, it’s a tad bit messier to eat, but it was really really good, so in my opinion, totally worth the crumbs!! Let me know if you make it, I wanna hear your thoughts!!
