S’mores Caramel Popcorn

Crunchy caramel popcorn drizzled with semisweet chocolate and tossed with mini marshmallows and graham cracker crumbs makes a great gift (and snack) for any occasion.

It’s no secret that I love s’mores, especially the gooey toasted marshmallows and the mess of melted chocolate, so when I had to chance to review The S’mores Cookbook by Susan Whetzel, I jumped at the opportunity. Back in August, she invited me to guest post on her blog Doughmesstic with a s’mores round up. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts on her book plus her recipe for S’mores Caramel Popcorn. Once you see how easy this recipe is, you’ll never eat plain caramel popcorn again. If that isn’t enough incentive, I’m also giving away one copy of the book to one lucky reader.

The S’mores Cookbook is filled with straight-forward s’mores desserts that you would expect to find in this book, like Oatmeal Chocolate Chip S’mores Cookies, Chocolate Graham Pancakes, and S’mores Cupcakes. Because I am a huge s’mores fanatic, I think about s’mores recipes all the time. Susan’s recipes are on the simple side, so no intimidation here. After bookmarking a few recipes to try, such as S’mores Turnovers and S’mores Eclairs, I decided on S’mores Caramel Popcorn. With the holidays coming up, more and more people are relying on homemade gifts from the kitchen. With the way prices are these days, I don’t blame them one bit (I do the same thing). This popcorn takes little effort with big results. You can easily knock out a few bags’ worth to give away (or fill up your snack bowl and keep for yourself). I did leave out the melted white chocolate chips since I didn’t have any.

Normally I would make my own caramel popcorn for this mix, but I was out of unpopped kernels. Since I had to go to the store anyway, I bought a box of Fiddle Faddle to save time. If you are feeling ambitious enough to make caramel popcorn, click here for the recipe.
