chocolate popcorn

June 24, 2013 6 Comments

Now, this isn’t so much a recipe post, mostly because it’s
not really a recipe, more instructions for life. Making chocolate covered
popcorn is something you OUGHT to be doing. Right now. It’s the irresistible, possibly
crack laced brother to your normal bowl of popcorn and it’s so easy I feel a
little bit dumb writing a blog post about it, but every time I make it, it’s
gone in seconds and everyone wants more. Plus, I was making some for last weekends
craft fair cake stall, so it seemed the perfect time to blog it.

You will need;

1 bag of pre-popped popcorn. Sweet or salted, your choice.
Maybe not caramel and definitely not that cheese popcorn that Tesco have started selling . We don’t have a
microwave and I can rarely find a panlid that fits {the boyf on the other hand
knows exactly where they are – I think he hides them} so I buy a bag of
pre-popped popcorn, lazy, I know, but hey – it’s popcorn!
1 big bar of white chocolate. If you don’t like white
chocolate, substitute it for something you do like, but if you use dark chocolate, then you might be shunned by me!
1 big bag of M&M’s, I use straight up chocolate, but you
could use peanut, or mint or whatever you fancy really. I’ve seen posts on
Pinterest where people have used pretzels too.
And you’ll need to;

Pour the bag of popcorn into a large bowl.

Now, break the chocolate up into little pieces and melt it.
If you’re like me, in a bowl over a pan of water. If you’re normal and have a
microwave, I’d suggest you do it in that!

Once the chocolate is melted. Pour about 2/3 of it over the
popcorn. And mix.

When the popcorn is nearly all coated, add the bag of M&M’s, mix,
and pour in the rest of the chocolate. Mix again.

Pop the bowl somewhere cool to set the chocolate. Once the chocolate is set, eat. Or
pop onto cute little bags for your friends. 

*Popcorn doesn’t tend to store very well, so make sure if you
don’t eat it right away it’s stored in an airtight container{there’s not much
chance of it hanging round very long though!}

    That looks so good! Hubby has just been sent instructions of what to buy from supermarche to create these. Wish I'd spotted them at forge. Hope mine turn out as well!

    Oh wow this looks so good. I would have to use dark chocolate though – sorry! x

      Mmmm. Dark chocolate. I'm not sure how I feel about that – it's my least favourite type of chocolate. But, as long as you don't make me eat any – I think I'll let you!

      It is. Somewhere in the chocolate and popcorn, crack is made!
