Popcorn S’more Bars {Recipe}

Half-term, for us, usually means a bit of a slow week – and not in a good way. All of our normal toddler groups don’t run during the school holidays and, if the weather is a bit pants, we quite often end up stuck at home trying to find things to do (besides watch silly amounts of CBeebies).

The last few times that I’ve done a spot of home baking, Jasmine has shown plenty of willing in terms of getting involved. Mixing, stirring, pouring – just show her what to do it and she’ll do it. With this in mind, I decided to do a little mid-week baking session with her (although, technically there was no actual baking involved).

For Christmas, my husband bought me a popcorn maker. He recalled that I had been given one as a birthday present from my mum when I was 12-years-old. These days, the smell of hot popping corn takes me right back to the summer of 1999. It makes me want to stick on a Spice Girls CD and write in my diary about boys I fancy.

Anyway, I totally digress – ever since getting my new popcorn maker for Christmas I’ve been playing around with different recipes that incorporate popcorn – most of which have been of the cupcake variety. However, I decided with the help of my little person, we would set about creating an easy no-bake Popcorn S’more Bar recipe. I’m delighted to say that they turned out rather well. Crunchy, yet chewy and smothered in chocolate – what’s not to like?

Here’s what you’ll need: 

  • Popcorn kernels (if you don’t have a popcorn maker you can use plain shop bought popcorn)
  • 220g Unsalted butter
  • 200g Chocolate
  • 150g Mini marshmallows
  • Digestive biscuits (or any other kind of biscuit that takes your fancy!)

Aside from the marshmallows and butter – the amounts are not an exact science – this really is a “chuck it all in” kinda recipe. It’s up to you how much you want to make!

How to make it:

      No, it’s only since I’ve had my popcorn maker that I’ve looked into ways of using it in recipes. It really works though!

      Hope you like them! xx

      Honestly, every time I have to stop myself from eating the whole damn lot!! They are super, super easy to do as there’s no real baking involved. I’m glad you had a lovely half term with the twins. Ours didn’t turn out too bad either seeing as the weather has been mostly gorgeous sunshine! :) xx

    Oh my goodness. These look divine! I’m not the biggest fan of popcorn so would have to substitute it with rice krispies or something but still, YUMMY! x

      Oh yes, you could definitely replace the popcorn with rice krispies or any other kind of cereal. xx

      Even better if you’ve got all the ingredients already! We always have a stash of marshmallows in the house. You know, for emergencies. ;) xx

    I don’t know if much popcorn would make it past my mouth and into the mixing bowl!

    Well, I have told you my thoughts and feelings on Twitter about these beautiful little treats. Basically I want to eat them everyday for the rest of my life ( as long as my waist doesn’t grow). I am going to make these asap in this house as I know everyone will love them. Thankyou for sharing and joing in with #LittleAppetites. Well done Jasmine you did a fantastic job on helping mummy! Hopefully see you back next week to share another foody toddler experience?! xxx

      Oh, they definitely won’t make your waist grow bigger – promise! ;) I really hope you all enjoy them as much as we did – let me know what you think of them. I really enjoyed joining in with the little appetites linky and it’s inspired me to try making a few more things with Jasmine – she was such a good little helper! :) I’ll maybe do something a bit healthier next time though. I’m meant to be doing Slimming World! xx
