The Perfect Duo for TV Lovers: S'mores Popcorn Snack Mix...and Beamly!

When I'm not busy whipping up tasty creations in the kitchen, I enjoy chilling out with Michael in front of the television. We enjoy watching food-related shows, but we also love watching comedies, late-night TV, and a few animated series. Beamly is a really cool website and smart phone app that I recently discovered, and I've been having a lot of fun checking it out this week! Beamly lets you chat with other fans about your favorite TV shows. You can follow my Beamy profile and join me in my favorite TV Rooms to chat with me about some of my favorite programs. A few of the Rooms that I'm currently following are The Tonight Show, True Blood, and Hell's Kitchen. If you love to watch TV...and love to talk about it...this is the perfect platform for you!

When Michael and I watch TV, we always enjoy having something to munch on...and what better than popcorn? But not just any popcorn, mind you. I love to whip up a big bowl of my addictive S'mores Popcorn Snack Mix. With a few simple ingredients and a super-quick prep, this is a fun and easy snack to make before you settle in to catch up on your favorite TV programs. If you love s'mores, you're going to go crazy for this simple and satisfying snack. It's a sure-fire hit with kids of all ages!

S'mores Popcorn Snack Mix
a Weekend Gourmet Original

  • 4 cups popcorn, cooled to room temperature
  • 2 tbs. cocoa powder
  • 2 tbs. powdered sugar
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 cup bite-sized graham crackers
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Step 1: Add the room-temperature popcorn to a large mixing bowl. Combine the cocoa powder and powdered sugar and add to the bowl. Stir until the cocoa mixture evenly coats the popcorn.
Step 2: Add the marshmallows, grahams, white chips, and chocolate chips to the popcorn mixture in the bowl. Use a spatula to evenly combine the ingredients and scoop into plastic cups for easy serving.
It truly doesn't get easier than this! For such a little investment of time, you're rewarded with a delicious and fun sweet treat. Each bite features all your favorite s'mores flavors...and the cocoa coating on the popcorn kernels really ties all the flavors together. I hope you'll whip up a batch of this s'mores popcorn snack mix for your next TV night. I also hope you'll watch this commercial to learn more about Beamly:
