Smores Popcorn Balls

Thank you to PopSecret for sponsoring today’s post.

We eat a lot of popcorn in the Grant house.  The kids love it, and I love it.  They request it as a snack at least twice a week.  Which works for me because its a quick and easy snack that we all enjoy.  They like their popcorn plain or with a little salt.  I like mine fancy or covered in butter.  And what’s more fancy then popcorn balls?  Smores popcorn balls! 

Smores popcorn balls!  Bring your favorite summer treat - inside!

The kids know that when we have a popcorn snack that we are going to watch a movie too.  Movies and popcorn just go together.  So Ill pop a bag real quick and then pop in a movie.  I love sitting on the couch lightly elbowing Ryley and asking for more popcorn.  She gets a kick out of it.

I don’t want to toot my own horn, but Im a pretty darn good popcorn maker.  Its pretty hard to burn a bag of microwaveable popcorn, right?  Ha!  Wrong!  The other day I bought a box of PopSecret for kids and proceeded to burn half a bag of popcorn.  I was devastated.  My clean popcorn popping record was tossed right out the window.

Thankfully I was able to salvage some of the popcorn and then pop another bag.  If I had an iPhone I would have been able to download the PopSecret Perfect Pop app.  [I have an Android.. womp womp.]  But according to my iPhone friends, its pretty stinking cool!  You hold it up to the microwave and it tells you when your popcorn is done popping.  Although I’m a pretty darn good popcorn maker, I would still give the app a try.

While the kids were watching a movie with papa munching on unburned PopSecret popcorn, I was in the kitchen whipping up these smores popcorn balls.  It was one of the rare times that they didn’t come in and see what I was doing.  Ahh, the magic of movie and popcorn.
