Smores Balls

We’re fortunate enough to have a bounty of popcorn here at Popcornopolis, and many of the folks who work here enjoy creating in the kitchen. Here’s the latest submission by Diane Cowhill. We hope you’ll enjoy!

Popcornopolis S'Mores Corn Ball Pops

You’re going to love this super cool reinterpretation of two beloved childhood treats: popcorn balls and s’mores. We put them on a stick because, well, food is better on sticks. These pops are great for kids of all ages, simple to make, outrageously tasty, and just as enjoyable in front of a campfire or the newest summer blockbuster.

The thin, crunchy graham cracker cereal provides great texture and flavor--we think they’re the perfect size and really prefer them to graham cracker crumbs. We recommend that for the star ingredient you start out using Popcornopolis Nearly Naked (or Zebra® Popcorn for super decadence), because the flavors tie in really well together and give you a more traditionally “smore’sy” experience. We finish off with two types of chocolate because zebra-striping tastes good and looks absolutely gorgeous.
