S’Mores Popcorn

Hi folks.

Happy Thanksgiving Monday to all my Canuck friends and family. Hope you are still eating yourselves silly today. It’s the one weekend you can eat like a linebacker and get away with it. So enjoy it while it lasts. Cuz you all know tomorrow is going to be all about a lot of us stepping on the scale and screaming. Our American friends will hear the collective gasps of horror and know their time is coming. Won’t be long till we’ll hear their screams next month. 

Today is The Secret Recipe Club reveal. This month I was assigned a fabulous blog called The Weekend Gourmet. I was thrilled to get Wendy’s blog. We also belong to Sunday Supper together so I was thrilled to see her name in my inbox. I just knew I was going to find tons of cool recipes to pull from. I mean she is a powerhouse in the kitchen. She cooks up meals and snacks and ice cream. I was really drawn to her Wolf’s Wonderful Peanut Butter Brownie Fudge Sundaes but there’s not enough of us peanut butter lovers in the house right now. So I’m saving that until Christmas time. I want to make it for my brother when he comes over. He’s a peanut butter nut. After looking at tons of recipes and making myself seriously hungry I saw that she had a popcorn category. Naturally I went to take a look see. I knew immediately the s’mores had to be made. Such a cool idea. You know me and popcorn. It’s a huge love of mine. Like stalker kind of love. Like lock me up and throw away the key kind of love.

I heard through the grapevine that popcorn is off limits to anyone with diverticulitis. I may have bawled like a little baby when I heard that. I could not wrap my head around a life without popcorn so I started doing some research, and by research I mean “google”. Turns out Dr. Oz says that popcorn thing is a rumour. Seriously, I now love Dr. Oz. Like stalker kind of love. Like stand outside his window and stare while eating popcorn kind of love. So I’ve tested it out and here’s what I learned. I can eat popcorn in moderation. I can eat popcorn if I am feeling well. If I try to eat it while I’m already flared up, well, that’s not a good idea. But day to day it doesn’t seem to bother me. I’m still in the learning phase so experimenting is how I figure out what I can eat and what’s off limits. I’m happy to report Lunie can continue her love affair with popcorn. And Dr. Oz.

S’Mores Popcorn
Author: 
Recipe type: snack
 
An easy recipe to make s’mores popcorn that will make your whole family do the happy dance!
Ingredients
  • 10 cups popcorn
  • 16 ounces milk chocolate for drizzling
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups mallow bits
  • 24 graham cookies, broken or smashed
  • 2 to 4 ounces of milk chocolate, shaved or cut into pieces
Instructions
  1. Pop your popcorn. I do mine old school on the stove. Take a large stock pot and pour veggie or canola oil so it covers the bottom of the pot. Turn on medium heat and let it get hot but not scorching hot. Dump in 1 cup of kernels, and let them start to warm up. I don’t cover yet. Every little bit give the stock pot a swirl or shake. Once the first piece pops cover the pot. Turn heat down one notch. Let it start to pop like crazy. Right at the point it just starts to slow down, I take mine off the heat and let the rest pop. This keeps it from burning.
  2. Now take 10 cups of popcorn and dump it out on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  3. Melt ½ your chocolate and butter in the microwave. Check it every 30 seconds and stir, it should only take 1 minute to 1½ minutes to cook. Now drizzle all over the popcorn.
  4. Take ½ your mallow bits and pour over top.
  5. Take half your graham crumbs and toss over top.
  6. Now melt the second batch of chocolate and repeat.
  7. Toss the second batch of mallow bits over top.
  8. Toss the second batch of graham crumbs over top.
  9. Stir them around.
  10. Toss shaved chocolate over top.
  11. Pop in the fridge for a bit to set up if you like. Or leave out and it’ll dry up on its own.
  12. Serve with a big old I miss summer smile!
Notes
I used milk chocolate but you can use whatever kind you prefer. It’s always better to use a good quality chocolate for these types of things. I used up the last of the milk chocolate we bought at Whole Foods. I also popped more popcorn than necessary. 1 cup yields way more than 10 cups so just use ½ cup of kernels if looking to do about 8 to 10 cups. I wanted extra for noshing on.

Cool right. I just love me some funky popcorn. You can change this up and use dark chocolate. I know a lot of people love the dark and it does photograph better. But I’m a milk chocolate kind of gal. Just the way it is.

Thanks to Wendy at The Weekend Gourmet for such a cool recipe. I did not change too much about it. I called it “slightly adapted” but that might even be a stretch. I only changed up a few minor things to suit my own taste. That’s the cool thing about recipes. People get all freaked out and intimidated by recipes, or won’t try something cuz they don’t like one ingredient. Live dangerously people. Change stuff up and experiment. It’s how you learn. Be fearless in the kitchen, if it fails just have your kids run to the store for more ingredients. I mean that is why we all have kids right.? To run errands for us once their old enough. If you’re kids aren’t old enough to run to the store just keep a place that deliveries on speed dial. See, I’m always helpful. Putting out fires everywhere I go. Miss helpful extraordinaire!

  2. 3

    Yay…I’m so glad you had my blog this month! I’m 2-for-2 with Sunday Supper friends having my blog for SRC since moving to Group A. Isn’t this popcorn fun? It was a huge hit when I made it for football munchies last year…might have to make a batch for this weekend’s game come to think of it!!

      I am so thrilled I got your blog. I had such a hard time picking which recipe I wanted to make. Love this popcorn. I have such a weakness for the stuff. Eating some now.

    Old school popcorn is the best, though it does take a tiny bit of effort. So what? The flavor is great! I’ve never had S’Mores Popcorn – cool idea. All of that flavor in one of my fav snacks (I really like popcorn too). Sorry to hear you can eat your popcorn only in moderation, but that’s way better then never having it again! Fun post – thanks.

      It really is. I love popping it on the stove. Although certainly microwave has it’s advantages. It was so good. I keep sneaking into the fridge to grab more.

    *singing* “Did I ever tell you you’re my heroooooo! You’re everything I would like to beeeee….”

    You are the wind beneath my wings with this popcorn. STAHP IT! omnomnommmmmm

    Happy Thanksgiving my Canadian love :P

      *falls down laughing*

      Love it.

      Thanks. I decided to make a roast today. I feel like a Thanksgiving slacker.

    Yum!!! Happy Thanksgiving Kim! Glad to hear that you can still eat popcorn and bring us all these yummy popcorn recipes :) PS I <3 Dr. Oz too! He's awesome!

    • 10

      Thanks Kels, you too! Hope you had a good weekend with the family.

      I was thrilled when I read it’s not necessary true for everyone. I just need to be careful. I also heard no nuts which would have just about ruined my life. Dr. Oz rules.

    I’m so happy you can still eat popcorn because I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t eat all that amazing popcorn above! Seriously, I want to reach through my computer screen and eat it all!

    • 12

      Thanks Susan. I was so horrified to think I can never eat it again. I’m sure I’ll need to experiment with my diet. They also say no nuts. Can you imagine me not being able to eat pistachios. Good lord.

  7. 13

    This sounds over the top amazing!!! I love all sorts of variations on popcorn. This is something I need to have immediately!

  8. 17

    You always have ways for me to beat myself up for my senior diet ;)
    I am digging this popcorn sooooo much!

    Cheers

    I never heard that about popcorn and diverticulitis! I remember growing up, when one doc. told me that there was the chance I might have it as it runs in the family, I was to stay away from tomatoes, seeds, etc. Thankfully, my side issues were due to something totally else and eventually subsided but if I was told then no popcorn, I would have lost my mind. Now the fact that you have melded s’mores and popcorn – this is begging to be tried!

    Dr. Oz is amazing, imo :) If you stalk him, don’t worry – the stiletto fund can come in handy for bail money too ;)

    • 20

      Yup, they say no nuts, popcorn or seeds. Dr. Oz says it’s not true. Which I was so happy about. It’s a weird illness, I can’t eat some things for the ibs and some things for the diverticulitis so I’m still in the “wth can I eat” phase.

      I am so glad to know the stiletto fund has my back. I’m known to cause trouble everywhere I go.

    I’m so happy that you can still eat popcorn, because what kind of world would this be if a gal had to give up her one and only love? (Well, okay… one of many loves, but that doesn’t make it any less of a tragedy.)
    Also, this whole s’mores meets popcorn thing? Sign me up. And by sign me up, I mean mail be a big bucket of this stuff.
    Actually, scratch that. I need to behave for the next week after spending the past weekend stuffing my face with turkey and fixin’s, and last I checked, chocolate-covered popcorn doesn’t fall in the “behave” category. Sniff.

    • 22

      Me too Izzy. I about died when I heard that. They said no nuts or seeds too so honestly I was traumatized. So happy to see I can still have it on occasion.

      I missed dinner this year. Doing a roast tonight for just me, mini-me and boytoy. But no big meal this year. I may try doing it in a couple weeks. I feel weird not having celebrated. Of course I miss the copious amounts of food.

      Happy Thanksgiving Izz!

  13. 27

    I’ll order this in a large, please.

  14. 29

    Oh my gosh! S’mores pocorn? Seriously?!!! How can such an amazing thing even exist!

    • 30

      Lol, it’s so good Lisa. You have to try this. I had to send half of it away with my daughter’s boyfriend to stop me from eating it all.

  15. 31

    Definitely funky popcorn but obviously delicious :)

    Your popcorn recipes are much better than any popcorn/candy store, Kim! I have to make this smores popcorn because my son is really into marshmallow these days and he even started to enjoy rocky road. Sounds fun to make it together with him on weekend and maybe we call it movie day. Hope everything is well with you. Have been so busy and I haven’t checked how you have been doing but hope all’s well.

    • 36

      Awe thanks Nami, you are so sweet. Your son would love this Nami. It’s super easy to make and would be perfect for a movie day.

      I am doing well. Recovering so nicely from my illness. Almost feeling normal. Hope you are well too Nami. xx

      I totally am not. How dare you. *falls down laughing*

      Okay, okay, I totally am. I like to eat it almost as much as pistachios.

      Hugs right back at ya.

    OK..since I’ve been embroiled in work, the baseball play-offs and pinning the past week, I’m finally here to say (at 5 am no less lol) that I was so happy to get your blog! It was fun spending a month here, although I wish you could have left me some of this s’mores popcorn to nibble on while I perused! ;D Great choice..I definitely would have chosen it myself! I hope you get all of your photos back soon!!

    YUM! yum. yum. yum. This looks ridiculously good Kim! With Halloween coming up I am stalking your candy recipes like crazy :) I can’t decide which to try first!
