Popcorn S'mores

Popcorn S'mores

Confession time: The wind has hardly started to blow and we've already blown through most of our "hurricane snacks."

Fortunately, we still had a few ingredients on hand and, in minutes, had whipped up Popcorn S'mores to get us through the tense hours ahead.

Stay vigilant and safe, and, of course, well fed as Hurricane Laura hits.
