You know we are obsessed with five star spicy popcorn recipe, one of our most popular snacks. This one is not spicy but wonderfully chocolate-y! For a party event, you can even prepare white chocolate popcorn too and serve them all together.
Do you ever feel stuck when you can’t find a party treat that is different from what you’ve been making for a long time? If you love candied peanuts, which are salty and sweet, you will love chocolate covered popcorn too.
Popcorn is fun. Chocolate is fun. When sprinkles are involved, everything is even more fun. Can you imagine what happens when these three fun ingredients are all combined in one treat?
This is one of the simplest treats ever with just three ingredients: Popcorn, melted chocolate and sprinkles.
If you want to make your own popcorn, you will need to buy corn kernels and add two more ingredients to the list that you always have in your kitchen: olive oil and salt.
How To Make
You can prepare chocolate popcorn in 10 minutes! This time is even shorter if you buy packaged popcorn. But if you love making things from scratch and think that making popcorn is fun on its own, make it yourself.
All you need to do after having a large bowl of popcorn is to coat them with melted chocolate and sprinkles.
This chocolate drizzled popcorn is definitely an easy and crazy tasty snack, which will become one of your specialties.
If you like the combination of chocolate and nuts, use crumbled nuts instead of sprinkles. Walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, peanuts or almonds would be a good match.
You can even add one or two tablespoon peanut butter into melted chocolate and then drizzle it over popcorn.
If you are a fan of orange and chocolate combination, use orange zest instead of sprinkles.
If you want to go even more naughty, smash some m&m candies and sprinkle them over chocolate covered popcorn.
- If you want even a quicker recipe, use store-bought popcorn. Make sure it is not flavored or covered with anything else. Just buy plain popcorn.
- If you decide to make your own popcorn, make sure corn kernels are suitable for popping. Also, the pot must be covered with a lid when corn kernels start to pop. Otherwise, everywhere will be in a mess.
- After drizzling melted chocolate over popcorn, let it sit until chocolate dries.
