Hey it’s Carisa here – from Messes to Memories. I’m excited to be back and sharing one of my family’s favorite summer time treat!! This is a delicious, rich and crunch S’more Caramel Popcorn!
Now this treat is gonna get messy. In fact, its supposed to be messy… I always have to convince my daughter that its okay to get your fingers dirty every once in a while. The amazing thing is she ate a whole bowl of popcorn and her fingers were perfectly clean – she didn’t even lick them. She was just SO careful when she was eating. You can see how messy and chocolatey the popcorn was, isn’t that just crazy???
This snack mix can be modified to be as rich as you would like. Ours was super rich!I know you’re here because you want to know how I made this delicious popcorn. Let me tell ya, it was pretty easy!You need to make sure you have everything ready to go… popcorn popped and all the S’more Mixture ingredients open and handy before you start the caramel.
Mix well! Coat all the popcorn with the marshmallow-y caramel goodness! The chocolate and marshmallows start to melt as soon as the caramel touches them. Which is good, because the chocolate will then coat everything… which can be pretty messy. In a good way, of course! Some things are meant to be messy. Caramel corn is one of those things 🙂
I put semisweet chocolate chips in before the caramel and a cup of milk chocolate chips after it had cooled for a little while. I love the milk chocolate because it makes it so rich. I mean, if you are gonna eat dessert, you might as well do it right.
- 12 cups popped popcorn
- 4 cups golden grahams cereal
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- For the caramel:
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 14-15 marshmallows
- Melt the butter on the stove, add the brown sugar and marshmallows and stir until a smooth caramel forms.
- Combine the popped popcorn, golden grahams, 1 cup marshmallows and 1 cup chocolate chips. Pour the caramel over a cup at a time, mixing each time to coat as much as possible.
- Let sit and cool for a minute and add the rest of the chocolate chips and marshmallows. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes to get it to set up quick and not be super sticky. Or just eat it right away if you don't mind your fingers being a little sticky...
