Some of the best recipes are born out of necessity. This is one of them. A few weeks ago I wanted a treat, but we had no treats. We had chocolate chips and popcorn. What I really wanted were some rolo’s or M&Ms to throw in with my popcorn, but then I had an epiphany. What if I actually just straight up poured chocolate onto the popcorn? And I did. I’ll never look back.
It’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet. Oh, you hate that? Then use unsalted butter and don’t add salt. Then it’s just sweet. Either way, you’ll make this and then want to send me presents. That’s okay, you can send me presents. I love presents.
CHOCOLATE COVERED POPCORN (serves 1 but easily scaled)
1/4 cup popcorn (organic or else)
1/4 chocolate chips (I use enjoy life brand)
3 tablespoons butter (grass-fed)
1. Get excited.
2. Make popcorn on the stove, not in the microwave. Okay, you can make it in the microwave. I make it like this.
3. Whilst the popcorn is popping, melt butter in a small saucepan. When melted add chocolate chips off heat and stir to combine. If it’s too thick, add more butter. Yes.
4. Pour chocolate mixture over the popcorn and use two forks to evenly mix it, simiarly to how you would dress a salad. This is the best method, trust me.
5. If you want to, like I did, add some fancy salt. Or regular salt. Or sugar. Or extra chocolate chips. I did all of the above.
I’m making this today.
This looks so good! If you really want to go for it, you could also throw in graham cracker pieces and mini marshmallows – s’mores popcorn! But really, I could eat nothing but the sriracha variety and be happy.
I love anything sweet and salty! I have such a weird relationship with popcorn, I looooove the smell but not as much as eating it, so weird!
YUM! This reminds me of those cans of popcorn people always used to give out around Christmas time. Best part of the holidays, hands down.
Omg sounds so yum! I love sweet and salty! I think I need to make this, like now. Thank you for sharing!
Why have I never had this before!? I’m a chocolate freak and what American DOESN’T like popcorn?
Get. In. My. Belly.
