Nutella S'mores Popcorn

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Pop Secret, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #pop4Fantastic4 http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

With the school year about to start back up for us, making time as a family is going to become a little more challenging. And with a three year old and a soon-to-be seventeen year old, finding something we can do together as a family and that we can all actually enjoy can become even more challenging. One thing that we do love to do together? Watch movies! :) That is why we try to plan a family movie night at least once a month. Whether it is heading to the theater to catch the new Fantastic Four movie or having a movie night-in, a family movie night is a guaranteed two hours or so of quality time together.

And what is a family movie night without the popcorn? Before our latest movie night-in, I headed to my local Walmart to pick up some of our favorite microwave popcorn- Pop Secret Homestyle Popcorn. While we love Pop Secret as is freshly popped from the microwave, sometimes I like to turn our favorite popcorn into a fun treat for the family. Since we are still trying to soak up and enjoy these last few days of summer break, I thought why not combine our favorite movie night popcorn with one of our summertime favorites, s'mores?

Nutella S'mores Popcorn

by Frugal Foodie Mama
Prep Time: 12 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Ingredients (7-8 cups)
  • 7 cups of popped popcorn- 2 (3.2 oz) bags of Pop Secret Homestyle Popcorn
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 5-6 graham cracker sheets, broken into smaller pieces
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
Instructions
Pop the popcorn in the microwave according to the directions on the Pop Secret box.
While your popcorn is popping, break your graham crackers into small pieces. Set aside.
Dump the popped popcorn into a large bowl.

In a small saucepan, bring the corn syrup to a boil and let simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and mix in the Nutella and the vanilla. Once the Nutella is incorporated, immediately pour the mixture over the popcorn in the bowl and stir well to coat the popcorn.

Dump in the graham cracker pieces and the cup of mini marshmallows and fold in.
Turn the mixture out onto 2 large baking sheets lined with waxed paper. Allow to cool and set completely, about 15-20 minutes.
Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
Enjoy!

Though you could probably use any of your favorite Pop Secret flavors in this Nutella S'mores Popcorn, I really love making this popcorn treat with their Homestyle popcorn. With its sprinkle of salt & taste of butter, the Homestyle pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the Nutella, graham crackers, and marshmallows.
