When Butterkist offered to send us popcorn to inspire some recipes with our little people in mind we reached straight for their second favourite cinema snack as an accompaniment – marshmallows. The autumn evenings have inspired regular movie nights so we decided to create popcorn inspired S’mores.
Sticky, messy and sweet – absolutely perfect for the little people as treats on a Saturday evening.When looking at the flavours of popcorn Butterkist had sent, the children went straight for the Choc Mallow bag, and it was from here our recipe was inspired.We decided to make something a little bit like popcorn balls but with a lot more goo. When thinking about S’Mores I wasn’t sure how to create the cracker biscuit. Walking the aisles in the supermarket to stock up on breakfast cereal I spotted something which reminded me of Golden Grahams, I thought they’d be perfect, especially because these had a cinnamon flavour, which make the most delicious smell and accompanying flavour. The result was delicious, completely sickly sweet- small squares are the way to go.
