Theresa's Mixed Nuts: S'mores Popcorn Balls

S'mores Popcorn Balls

We love Smore's in the summer, but sometimes it's raining, the mosquito's are out in full force, or we just aren't in the mood to get the fire pit up and going. Thankfully, my kids also love popcorn, so this recipe is perfect for those days when we just can't get out there and make that ooey, gooey treat.

dessert, treat


1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp baking soda
10 cups fresh popped popcorn. *DO NOT use air popped popcorn. It is too delicate for the hot syrup*
1 10.5oz pack mini marshmallows
2 cups mini graham cookies (teddy grahams)
3/4 cup chocolate chips


Combine brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a medium pan and cook over high heat for 5 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and stir in baking soda.
Thoroughly combine popcorn and marshmallows in a metal or heat resistant glass bowel. (Do not use plastic. The hot syrup can melt it or cause damage to your bowl.)
Drizzle syrup mixture over popcorn to coat it, then gently stir in the graham cookies and chocolate chips, making sure it is all evenly mixed.
Let the mixture set until cool enough to handle. Then, using sandwich bags sprayed with cooking spray, shape mixture into balls.
Store in an air tight container.
