My friends are such a great source of inspiration for recipes. Megan is a dear friend of mine who I’ve mentioned on my blog quite a few times and she’s always full of great tips, tricks and recipes! This recipe is one she inspired. One of her super quick and simple treats is her white chocolate glazed popcorn. With that in mind, I made a festive version which I call, Christmas Corn. These make a great snack and pretty packaged treats to share. The best part is all you need are 3 things…
Mircowave popcorn, red chocolate melts and green chocolate melts. That’s all you need to make Christmas Corn. Essentially, it’s popcorn drizzled with melted colored chocolate, tossed and allowed to set. The combo of salty and sweet is key and this festive snack is addictive.
But why stop there? You can make ‘Hanukkah Corn’ with white and blue chocolate melts. Maybe try red and pink chocolate melts for ‘Hugs & Kisses Corn’ in honor of Valentine’s Day. You get the idea. Enjoy… and thank you Megan!
recipe inspired by Megan
2 packets microwave popcorn
1/4 cup red chocolate melts
1/4 cup green chocolate melts
Prepare the popcorn as directed. You can also use store bought popcorn or popcorn prepared however you like. Transfer your popped corn onto a large roasting pan and set aside.
Melt the chocolate in separate containers as directed on package. (I used my microwave and popped them in for 1 minute – 1 1/2 minutes.)
Using a fork, dip the fork into the red melted chocolate and drizzle the chocolate over the popcorn. Repeat with another fork into the green melted chocolate. Toss the popcorn gingerly to coat and repeat drizzling the chocolate as desired.
Allow the chocolate on the popcorn to set for 10-15 minutes before packaging for gifts… or you can enjoy it immediately if you can’t wait. 🙂
