Party Popcorn

For my friend’s, Lauren Schumacher, birthday this past weekend I made this delicious and addicting popcorn. Omg… I couldn’t stop eating it! A few weeks ago she messaged me about this awesome popcorn she tried that had chocolate on it. So, I knew right away that for her birthday weekend down in Gruene, TX two big bowls of party popcorn would be the perfect snack.

There are so many ways you could change this up but I wanted this batch to have a “snickers” type flavor, so I went with peanuts.

You’ll need:

1 bag of movie theater butter popcorn (I used 4 bags but I was making it for the masses)

Toffee pieces

Dip chocolate (the kind you dip strawberries in and it hardens)

Roasted Peanuts

Pop the popcorn and immediately put into a large mixing bowl. Shake in about a half a cup of peanuts. I mixed in the toffee pieces but in hind sight wished I would have melted them first and then drizzled them over the popcorn.

To melt the toffee, put about a cup of pieces in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds and stir, repeat until completely melted.

Then drizzle over the popcorn and peanuts, stirring and mixing frequently.

Now, heat up the dip chocolate according to the directions on the packaging. Usually very similar to above, heat for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until full melted.

Then with a fork, drizzle melted chocolate over popcorn mixture. Mix and drizzle frequently until it looks evenly dispersed throughout.

Happy Birthday Schumacher!
