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.
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!).
