Do you need a snack? Maybe something sweet? Perhaps something to munch on while you watch Degrassi High on Netflix? Ah yes, the winning combination of graham cracker, marshmallow, chocolate and 1980′s Canadian melodrama. Throw in some popcorn and you’re set.
Did you know you can air pop popcorn in the microwave just using a paper bag? I was a bit skeptical when I saw this trick for making popcorn in a paper bag but Liz gave it a shot and it worked for her. She made it for me when she was here, and other than being a tiny bit nervous that the bag might catch on fire, it made really great popcorn! And no microwave fires! Bonus!
Adapted from Canadian Living
1/3 cup of popcorn kernels, air popped
2 cups of mini marshmallows
2 tbsp butter or margarine
5 graham crackers, crumbled in small chunks
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Place popcorn kernels in a brown paper bag and fold top down tightly, 3-4 folds. Place in microwave for 2 1/2 minutes, removing when popping slows. Place popcorn in a bowl and gently shake to sift the unpopped kernels to the bottom of the bowl. Move handfuls of popcorn to another bowl, leaving the unpopped kernels at the bottom of the first bowl. This is just to avoid any hard or unpopped pieces from mixing into your s’mores and this is what worked for me.
Break the graham crackers into small pieces and toss into the popcorn. Add the chocolate chips to popcorn and shake to evenly distribute.
Melt butter and marshmallows in a sauce pan over medium heat. When fully melted, add marshmallow to popcorn and work quickly to evenly combine all ingredients using a wooden spoon or spatula. If things get a bit too sticky, you can always spray the spoon with cooking spray to avoid a giant globby mess.
Turn the mixture out onto a parchment covered tray and flatten into an even, single layer. Let cool to room temperature and then break into chunks for snacking.
