Bring the flavors of the summer indoors with S'mores Popcorn!

Anyone ready for s'more popcorn? I've shared with you how to make the perfect stovetop popcorn for two and some delicious sweet and spicy curry popcorn. But what about s'mores popcorn? I got that covered with today's recipe and the third part of the Five Days of Popcorn series.

Five Days of Popcorn

I love all things s'mores, from the buttery, crunchy graham crackers to the toasty marshmallows. Now let's talk about the chocolate options - Hershey's bar, Reese's peanut butter cups, Keebler fudge stripe cookies, or anything else you can dream of. I've always made my s'mores the 'traditional' way with squares from a Hershey's chocolate bar. Today I am changing it up a bit and including bittersweet chocolate in with my s'mores popcorn giving it a deep, rich campfire flavor.

Another way I achieve the smokey flavor of the campfire is by broiling all the ingredients on a baking sheet. This toasted up the marshmallows to perfection and ever so gently melted the chocolate.

I'm going to run off and make another batch because all this chatting about melted, toasted goodness is making me hungry!
