Pinterest Inspired Day 20: S'mores Popcorn

I love camping. I miss camping. We don't camp much these days. I don't have much of an excuse as to why we don't other than it just doesn't happen.

Campfires are the most magical fantastic part of camping. They way it dances around in the darkness and they way its scent attaches itself to you and stays with you until you wash it out; sending it down the drain.

Another magical part of the camping and campfire experience is s'mores! Yummy deliciousness in a graham cracker, chocolate, blackened sugary ball of mmmmmm! Leaving behind sticky fingertips. I was having a slight craving for s'mores recently. In the store marshmallows and Hershey bars are calling out to me.... I found a recipe for s'mores popcorn on Pinterest {}. It satisfied my craving for s'mores. It is delicious and easy to eat/transport in snack cups.

The recipe calls for 1 1/2 bags of microwave popcorn. I don't cook popcorn in the microwave, so I popped 1/2 cup and that made enough. I started to "drizzle" the chocolate straight from the bowl. It sort of glopped out so, I scooped up a spoonful and gently flicked it over the trays. It worked like a dream. I think when I make this again I might add some caramel sauce too!
