S’MORES POPCORN
Makes 10 servings

10 cups Cooked popcorn
10-12 pcs Graham crackers, broken into ½-inch shards
2 cups Mini marshmallows, divided
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsps Unsalted butter
1/2 cup Milk chocolate chips

  1. Grease a large roasting pan. In the pan, toss together the popcorn, graham crackers, and marshmallows.

  3. Pour the butter-marshmallow mixture over the popcorn. Using a spatula, toss to coat evenly. Work fast because the mixture cools quickly.
  4. Once cool enough to handle (about a minute), with clean hands shape the popcorn into 1 cup size balls. Place on wax paper until ready to serve.
  5. Before serving, melt chocolate in a microwave in ten second intervals. Drizzle melted chocolate over the popcorn balls with a piping bag or the tines of a fork. Serve.
