Are you looking for an impressive treat, that is fast, easy and no-fail? I have it right here! It’s chocolate covered popcorn and it’s fantastic – and did I mention EASY? I have the simple tutorial right here for you so you can make it for your party, movie night or whatever the occasion. AND, you can change it up for any holiday by using a different colored chocolate!
Quick & Easy Chocolate Covered Halloween Popcorn
10-14 cups of popped popcorn, depending on your taste
12 oz package of Wilton Light Green Chocolate Melts
12 oz package of Wilton Orange Chocolate Melts
Spread out waxed paper or parchment on a table.
Pop the popcorn, remove all the unpopped kernels as best you can.
In a glass, or microwaveable bowl, pour in the green chocolate button melts.
Cook in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir.
Continue this until the chocolate is melted completely and warmed through.
Be careful not to warm it too fast, or it will burn.
You do want it warm enough to coat the popcorn before setting up.
Stir gently until well coated.
Spread the coated popcorn onto the waxed paper or parchment so it is single layer thick.
Now, warm 1/2 – the entire bag of the orange chocolate button melts in a bowl; depending on how much you want to use.
Repeat the process for the orange chocolate as you did the green – using the same care not to burn.
Drizzle, with a spoon, the melted orange chocolate, over the top of the green coated popcorn in a random pattern.
Allow this to set up completely.
When the chocolates are cooled and set, using the waxed paper or parchment, move it from beneath to help crack the popcorn into sections.
