Chocolate Popcorn Marshmallow Treats {Mickey Sprinkles!}

Chocolate Popcorn Marshmallow Treats {Mickey Sprinkles!}

Popcorn combined with melted marshmallows, dark chocolate drizzle and colored sprinkles! A sweet treat that’s ridiculously easy to make.

Recently, I went to Disney. You know, my second home. In case you didn’t know, I frequent Le Disney Parks quite often. Being an annual pass holder, you’ll find me escaping to Orlando like twice a month. So I’m either going north or south. Disney World or the Florida Keys. My two favorite weekend getaways. Best perk of being in Miami is that we have it all just a drive away.

Every time we go to Disney, I always sit and stare at all the kitchen stuff. Naturally. My dream is to someday have an all-white kitchen with Mickey decor. Not crazy color happy Mickey decor; all-white Mickey decor. I want it all to look pristine! Even though, I make a crazy mess in the kitchen sometimes. I don’t care; I want it to look straight out of a magazine. Sigh. This dream will come true someday.

Until then though, I’ll settle for Mickey sprinkles. Ha!

Are those not the CUTEST thing you’ve ever seen?! Of course I wanted to use these IMMEDIATELY.

In case you don’t have Mickey sprinkles, you can use regular sprinkles. Don’t worry, you won’t alter the taste or anything. I was just WAY too excited to buy and use these. What better excuse than to make marshmallow treats!

Oh and by the way, these Chocolate Popcorn Marshmallow Treats were VERY addicting. So, be warned. They are salty, sweet, chocolatey, and DANGEROUS. I made two batches and let’s just say one of them somehow DISAPPEARED… yeah…

I mean melted marshmallows with chocolate and popcorn. What’s not to like!? If you’re not a HUGE fan of too much sweet, you can sprinkle a bit of sea salt on top to balance out all the sweet.

I hope you make them and LOVE them!

Chocolate chips and marshmallows are toasted in a cast-iron skillet, then topped with a drizzle of homemade salted caramel, resulting in these DELICIOUS Salted Caramel Skillet S'mores!

Servings: 4 people
Author: Jamie Silva
Ingredients
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk chocolate, or both)
  • 20-22 marshmallows (not the mini marshmallows, although you can use that, if you'd like)
  • 6-inch iron skillet
  • graham crackers
  • Homemade Salted Caramel (recipe link in notes)
Instructions
  1. Place 6-inch cast iron skillet in oven. Preheat oven to 450°F with skillet inside. Once oven is preheated, remove hot skillet from the oven with oven mitts. Be careful! The skillet will be very hot.
  2. Place butter in the skillet. Using a pot holder, hold the handle and swirl the skillet so that the melted butter coats the bottom and sides.
  3. Pour chocolate chips in an even layer onto the bottom of the skillet. Then arrange the marshmallows over the (melted) chocolate chips. Be careful! The skillet will be very hot!
  4. Place skillet back in the oven and bake for 5 minutes or until marshmallows are toasted.
  5. Remove the skillet from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Drizzle toasty marshmallows with homemade salted caramel sauce. Serve immediately with graham crackers. Be careful! The skillet will be very hot!

I hope you make it and LOVE it!
