Chocolate Popcorn Rocks

Chocolate Popcorn

Drizzle: to pour in a fine stream. Drizzle is a super cool word because you can hear it.

I know you have some drizzle happening outside your house right now. March, at least for the East Coast, is drizzle time.

Let's take the power of drizzle and turn into a force for good. For this popcorn, I used one ounce of dark chocolate - and it turned into THREE cups of popcorn.

All that dark chocolate goodness was spread all over the place and it made for a very low calorie chocolate treat. My kids gobbled this up and thought I was the "Best Mom Ever" for at least five minutes.

I used a microwave and popped my popcorn without oil see: DIY Microwave Popcorn: Healthy, Yummy, and CHEAP. I hear you can just put the popcorn in a glass bowl with a lid on it - and you will get perfect popcorn.

If you like salt, add it at the very end of the process. I like salty, chocolatey, popcorn - and the salt will stick to the melted chocolate. YUM!

How do you dress up your popcorn?

Chocolate Drizzled Popcorn Recipe

(serves 2)

1/4 cup popcorn kernels
1 ounce dark chocolate
coarse salt (optional)

Using a microwave or air popper - make your popcorn without using any oil. Spread popcorn on rimmed baking sheet. Heat chocolate in microwave for 10 second intervals until melted. Be careful because chocolate burns easily.

Drizzle chocolate over popcorn and shake some salt on it. If you are in a hurry put it in the fridge for 5 minutes and the chocolate will harden. Enjoy!

my popconrn secret i would like to share with you:
use regular popcorn, not the kind that is bought in ready made envelop. use less then medium glass bowl the but not a very small one. put some three to four spoons of popcorn. add about 3 spoons of warm water, add salt if you like it salty if you use kosher salt, most of it stays on the base of the bowl anyway but leaves nice saltiness. cover with seran wrap or that kind of sticky neilon forgot how it is called, puncture one or two holes with a sharp knife (small knife for small punctures) and put in the microwave for some 3-min. stay by it to watch if it does not overflow or start burning. if need be, add a little more micro time until the bowl is full of lovely white popcorn. you can now proceed to drizzle chocolate as per suggested by Snack Girl. it may take once or twice to experiment which kind of glass bowl (deep and not too large, and if you need more, do it in batches, it is so easy anyway)and how long it will take. drain water if you put too much. the popcorn should be nicely wet, it replaces the oil or butter very nicely. i hope you will enjoy this suggestion, i have made myself popcorn that way forever now.

I make microwave popcorn all the time. I just put popcorn in a lunch bag, roll down the top a couple turns - put it in the microwave and let it pop. You do have to stay close so you can stop it when the popping slows. I usually set it for about 3 min. I would guess it takes about 2 min. Perfect pop corn - then you add whatever you like on it. No clean up - just put the used bag in the recycle bin when done.

I've microwaved popcorn in a paper bag, but will try in a bowl with added water to see what difference that makes.

This sounds great BUT could you please tell me how to melt the chocolate so it drizzles and doesn't just clump. I tried 2 different kinds of chocolate in the microwave at short intervals. But it didn't melt to a pouring consistency.

HOW? Maybe you should include the instructions for the chocolate for laymen like me.

Drizzle 101: transfer melted chocolate to a zip-lock bag...squeeze chocolate down to the bottom corners...use scissors to snip off a small corner of the bag...drizzle away!

Thank you for your reply. I will try that.

melting chocolate the easy way: either on top of baine marrie or easier, heat a quarter of a cup of milk or water in the micro, no need to boil. add teh chocolate pieces and carefully mix with a spoon until all melted. if necessary, put it back for a further gentle heating but very short.

I have and love the Presto microwave popper you talked about. Bought many as gifts, too. I like to grate the chocolate onto the warm popcorn and then grate some orange rind, too and some salt. My first thought was "I don't know if this is gonna be good" but wow, it's incredible!!!
