I tend to take my movie nights and weekly show watching very seriously. And when you are preparing for the highly anticipated season premiere of your favorite show, it requires a seriously delicious snack to go with it. I found these amazing popcorn recipes on Pintererst and decided to try it for my Sunday TV show watching.
Seeing how popcorn is the traditional sidekick to the TV screen and s’mores is a delightfully indulgent treat, this recipe seemed perfect for the occasion. I found this recipe on http://www.bombshellbling.com/smores-popcorn-recipe/. First you pop two bags of popcorn and lay it out on a try with some tin foil or wax paper. Then you drizzle some melted chocolate and top with crushed graham crackers, mini marshmallows and chopped peanuts. The melted chocolate is easily made by heating up one bag of chocolate chips and one tablespoon of shortening in the microwave for increments of 30 seconds and stirring until combined. Then you put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and enjoy.
With inspiration from this sweet treat, I explored some more popcorn recipes and found these. All of the following recipes start off the same as the previous, but include different toppings.

This treat is the perfect mix between a salty and savory snack and a delightful desert. I found it on http://www.twopeasandtheirpod.com/sweet-and-salty-marshmallow-popcorn/. Once you have your tray of regular popcorn and pretzels you combine butter, corn syrup and marshmallows until melted. Then and in vanilla and salt. Evenly pour mixture on popcorn and pretzels. Then top with M&M’s and enjoy.
Cookies and Cream Popcorn:

This final recipe looks delicious, but is simple to assemble. I found it on http://www.twosisterscrafting.com/oreo-cookie-popcorn/. Start with two bags of popcorn in a bowl. Then melt butter and marshmallows in a saucepan until combined. Liberally crush mini Oreos so they are in smaller pieces but not quite in a powder form. Add the marshmallow mixture and crushed Oreos to popcorn and mix until completely coated. Spread popcorn onto a tray and put in the fridge until cool and enjoy.
All these recipes and easy to make, allows the creative freedom to use desired ingredients, and make any TV watching experience special and enjoyable.
