It’s Corny but Yummy

I’m not breaking any ground here because flavored-up popcorn has been a favored treat for a long time. The gourmet stores are charging a hefty price for a bag of the sweet stuff. It’s so easy to make at home for a fraction of the cost.

The Chef in Training blog has captured popcorn recipes from all around the blog world. Check them out. One of the recipes inspired the one I made here.

My hints: I use Wilton Candy Melts instead of chocolate chips for the melted chocolate. I find them easier to work with. You can find similar products in the grocery store produce section.

I don’t prefer microwave popcorn; it’s too full of chemicals and seasonings I don’t want. Pop the corn in a kettle on the stove with either Canola oil or coconut oil. A bag of unpopped popcorn goes a long way.

This isn’t the last you’ll hear from me on popcorn, I’m just getting started!

Chocolate and M&M’s® Popcorn

  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 11 ounces of chocolate candy melts
  • 9-ounce bag of M&M’s® Crispy
  • Sea salt to taste

Pulse M&M’s® in a food processor or coarsely chop M&M’s® (put in a plastic bag and pound with a rolling pin).

Melt the chocolate candy melts according to package.

Mix half the popcorn with half the chocolate and M&M’s®. Mix the other half of the ingredients together.

Line two baking sheets with wax paper. Pour the popcorn on the trays so the chocolate can set.

Store in air-tight container (if it lasts that long!).
