Last week I shared several ideas on easy to make party snacks by simply covering things in chocolate. But the end of the week brought some sickness and a few things that I needed to focus on. I really wanted to share this one more idea with you, because I just really love it! Chocolate covered popcorn, crazy yummy. I found this idea floating around Pintrest but it wasn't linked to a tutorial, sigh. So I decided to figure it out on my own, couldn't be that hard really. The outcome was a total sucess. I switched it out with our normal Friday night movie popcorn and the kids ate every bit of it...the only proplem is now my four year old thinks popcorn should always be covered in chocolate :)
Here's how I made it!
Step 3: Slowly pour in the melted chocolate while stiring with the other hand. It mixes much better if you stir and pour at the same time..sry I couldn't grow a third hand here!
Step 4. Lay out your popcorn on the wax covered cookie sheet. Try to take the spoon and seperate the kernels and give them a little space. If you don't do this you will end up with big clumps of chocolate popcorn. Let the first coat set for about 10 minutes.
Step 5 (optional): Once the first coat has hardened up a bit, put a little bit of candy melts or different chocolate in a zip lock bag. Melt in the microwave.
