Hi friends! I’m excited to say I’m starting the next chapter of my life, an exciting job I’ve been dreaming of for along time. With that being said.. I’m promising to posting one new recipe per week as I’m not ready to step away from blogging and enjoy the interactions with you all. Recipe creation. The creative outlet. All of it. I hope to still educate, share and inspire you in the kitchen to eat whole, real vegan foods.
This week’s recipe is a fun take on s’mores. We’ve been in a serious Seattle-ish band of weather with quite a bit of rain. S’more in our fire pit have been far and few between. I thought this would be a super fun take on what we all love – popcorn, chocolate, roasted marshmallows and graham crackers. You can make as much as you need, perfect for a party or movie night, and I promise… leftovers will not exist. Even my 80 year old father devoured it!
- 150g vegan chocolate
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- Optional: I also used 6 squares of smoked chocolate
- 4 cups of popcorn (I used Live Love Pop salted)
- 4 gluten free graham crackers (or use regular vegan graham crackers if you aren’t gf), chopped
- 8 Dandies marshmallows, roasted (see instructions)
- Prepare your ingredients.
- Measure out you chocolate and add your coconut oil and melt in the microwave or over a double boiler, whisking often.
- Once melted, either pour into a container to drizzle or simply use a fork to achieve the same distribution.
- Line your baking sheet with parchment for easy clean up.
- Add your popcorn to the prepared pan.
- Chop your graham crackers.
- To roast your marshmallows, place them on a s’mores stick or use tongs and put over a low flame on your stove.
- I roasted the chopped marshmallows together (using tongs).
- Repeat until they are all roasted.
- Add a drizzle of chocolate to the popcorn.
- Then sprinkle the graham crackers evenly over popcorn.
- Add another drizzle of chocolate to adhere the crackers.
- Then finally, add your marshmallows and finally drizzle with more chocolate.
- Refrigerate to harden the chocolate.
- Serve immediately or store in the fridge until serving.
I used Enjoy Life chocolate chips for the base. And I was thrilled to find this smoked chocolate from Mast while in Brooklyn. It’s not necessary for the success of the recipe.
Live Love Pop is my all time favorite popcorn. There is no other… you can buy it here.
Smoreable crackers can be found at most grocery stores in the gluten free section. But you can buy it here too.
Dandies are the vegan acceptable marshmallows. They can be found here or at most grocery stores.
The chocolate acts like the glue for all the toppings so you must layer at each step.
Use crumbs and the chunks you chop of the graham crackers for more texture.
No precise way to roast these babies but I chopped them all up & grabbed them with my tongs. I kept over the fire until beautiful and golden.
Enjoy & happy summer! Thank you Live Love Pop for providing the product for this post.
