I Remember the first time I had chocolate covered popcorn. I thought itwas a disgusting idea. But I gave it a try and boy was I wrong! Whenever I make it The Boy calls it Ultimate Popcorn and I rather like it. And because sometimes you feel like a nut, I came up with this.
8 c Popped Popcorn
8 oz Melted Chocolate
1/2 c Almond
1/2 c Coconut
Line a cookie sheet with either wax paper, parchment paper or a silicone mat. Spread the popcorn out in a layer. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn and gently but quickly begin to toss it. Add the nuts and coconut and toss a little more. Allow to cool an hour till the chocolate is hard and eat.
You can see by the photo I don’t drench it in the chocolate. If you want every kernel totally covered you will need to double up on the chocolate. Use whatever kind you like best, I used milk chocolate today.
S for the almoss I left them whole but slivered and chopped work too.
This time I used shredded coconut but flake definitely offers more pop.
Store in a Ziploc bag.
Mow see if you can Headed it without singing “Almond Joy’s got nuts, Mounds don’t …..”
