In a small microwave safe bowl, melt your white chocolate wafers. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring with a spoon.

step 7: pour over the popcorn

Once your chocolate has completely melted, evenly distribute and pour over your popcorn. Stir together making sure that each popcorn is covered in chocolate.

Quickly, before the white chocolate melts, evenly distribute your marshmallows, chocolate chips, and graham crackers. Mix together.

Serve and enjoy!

Can you burn chocolate wafers?

You can. It’s really important to pay attention to the time that you’re melting them for. If you burn then, you can’t fix it and will have to dump it out and start over from the beginning.

How do you store leftover popcorn?

To save leftovers, just add them to an airtight container or bag. You can keep it at room temperature as well.
