While popcorn is a fantastic snack, you can make it especially deliciously sweet with the minimal of preparation. This Choo Choo bars popcorn is fantastically chocolatey with that delicious Choo Choo bar caramel taste. This popcorn is the perfect choice for movie night or as an afterschool snack. It can be enjoyed warm or is equally tasty cold, so it is ideal for anytime.
10 chopped Choo Choo Bars
100 grams of condensed milk
40 grams of soft brown sugar
50 grams of unsalted butter
150 grams of popped corn
While you can prepare this popcorn with pre-popped corn, it is so much tastier when you pop the corn yourself. Either microwave or air pop your corn. Approximately 50 grams of corn kernels will be enough to make the 150 grams of popped corn. However, if you go a little bit over, it’s not a problem as you will just have more delicious Choo Choo popcorn. Once your corn is popped transfer to a large, clean bowl and allow to cool while you make the flavouring. Just be sure to remove any unpopped kernels from the bowl.
Heat the sugar, condensed milk and butter over a medium heat in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Stir the mixture constantly until it has warmed and become well combined. Once the sauce has begun to bubble, turn down to a low heat and stir for a further two minutes until it has thickened. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the pieces of Choo Choo bars lollies. Stir it well until all the chocolate pieces have melted. Pour this over the popped corn and mix well. This can be eaten immediately, or if you want to save it for later, spread across a cookie tray lined with baking parchment. This will prevent the popcorn from sticking together in a big lump.
This popcorn is excellent as a snack, but it can also be used to decorate cakes, sundaes and other desserts. The caramel, chocolate flavour is the perfect complement to most desserts, adding a fun flair to even the most dull ordinary sweet. If you want to get creative with the kids, you can even thread the popcorn into edible necklaces.
This recipe is completely flexible, and you can modify it to use your favourite candy bars. Try to experiment a little with other candy bars and you will be amazed at how deliciously tasty popcorn can be. Caramel based candy bars work really well, but you may be surprised at how well certain types of chocolate bars work. Why not try to make a batch of delicious popcorn with your favourite sweet treat.
