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!
