In this S'mores Popcorn Munch, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and graham cereal meet popcorn to bring camping flavors to movie night snacking!
S'mores are a perfect camping and campfire treat. But to be honest with you, I haven't gone camping for a few years and I doubt it will change this summer. Mosquito-infested woods just don't seem like an ideal place to take a newborn.
Other moms out there, I'm sure you would agree with me. If she winds up liking the outdoors and she really wants to go camping (like, really wants to), then we'll cross that bridge when we get there.
Missing out on camping this summer, however, doesn't mean I have to miss out on the awesome flavor combination that is (are?) S'mores!
Popcorn - One Of The Most Versatile Foods!
The solution, I've found, is this s'mores-flavored popcorn munch. When I made the Sparkling Funfetti Popcorn a couple of weeks ago, I warned you that I could see a lot more popcorn munch mixes in my life this summer.
I mean, why not? They are no-bake and come together in like 10 minutes or less. Oh and they are SUPER addicting!!! (My obligation for full disclosure is sufficiently fulfilled by this statement.)
Let me know if there is any flavor that you would like to see applied to a popcorn munch mix. I will do my best to comply.
Fun Movie Night In
Planning this s'mores popcorn mix, I had a stay-in movie night with the flavor of campfire in mind... only without the mess and mosquitoes.
Let me tell you, there wasn't much of the popcorn mix left by night time. Konrad kept hovering by my side as I was getting ready to photograph this treat. So, I let him try some under the condition of being my hand model.
Munching Away At This Perfect Snack
Needless to say, it didn't stay at that little bite. I could hardly keep myself from munching away as I was snapping pictures. So as soon as I wrapped up the picture taking, we sat down over a big bowl of s'mores popcorn - in the middle of the afternoon - happy as little kids 🙂
S'mores Popcorn Munch
