Chocolate Popcorn ~ Kids Corner

This recipe is long time due. I have made this Chocolate Popcorn in the beginning of this summer to entertain my bored kids! This turned out to be a quick make over of your routine popcorn into confetti popcorn. My kids never say NO to Chocolate or Popcorn. When they have both of these combined in one bowl, they are at their peeks. Oh yeah, you should see them! :-) Here is the recipe, Njoy!



Ingredients:
Popcorn bag - 1 ( microwaveable)
Butter - 2 Tbsp
Honey - 2 Tbsp (or Maple Syrup)
Sugar - 1 Tbsp
Cocoa Powder - 1 Tbsp
salt - 1/4 tsp ( or a pinch)

Method:

  1. First make the pop-corn in the microwave and transfer this to wide bowl.
  2. Mix the Sugar,Cocoa powder and salt in a small bowl. 
  3. Melt the butter in a nonstick pot. To this add Honey, start heating it on the stove and add sugar and cocoa mix to this. And mix it well until every thing is combined. Take it off from the stove. ( you shouldn't boil it).
  4. Pour this mixture over popcorn and toss it well so that it is coated. Now it looks little soft. 
  5. Now transfer chocolate covered popcorn  to non-stick cookie sheet. Bake for 5 min at 350F until it becomes crisp. Take it off immediately let it cool for 5 min and transfer this to air-tight container. stores outside for up to a week. 


Serve to your kids as evening snack! my kids totally loved it, i can see this happening more in my kitchen!

Tips:

  • Original recipe called for Corn Syrup, but I have replaced it with Honey as an healthy alternative. or you can use Maple Syrup. 
  • If your butter syrup becomes little thick because of honey, you can use 1 Tbsp of milk that makes it thin.
  • You can add some peanuts or pecans to the popcorn, before you coat. Nuts will be a nice addition to this confetti popcorn.
  • Just for the ease, I have used microwavable popcorn to make popcorn. If you are comfortable making popcorn withe corn kernels over stove top, Go for it!
Take a close peak! Wanna Some!

will be back with another fun recipe soon,
until then take care
