Seems we can never get enough popcorn in our house and although the plain variety is always welcomed, the flavoured ones are definitely preferred (but we have to be healthy sometimes…don’t we?).
Caramel Popcorn is a favourite, but recently I made up this Chocolate Marshmallow Popcorn, which went down a treat. I just used the chocolate that was in the pantry, which happened to be Cadbury’s Top Deck (my all time favourite). I think you could pretty much use any chocolate you have available – dark, milk, white or even those with fruit and/or nuts.
Chocolate Marshmallow Popcorn
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup popping corn
90-100g chocolate (about 4 rows of 200g block)
1 tablespoon butter
Grease a slice tray and set aside.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan and once hot enough (a corn kernel will spin when dropped into the oil) add the popping corn. Put on the lid and shake well. Once popping slows down, remove from heat.
Melt the chocolate and butter together either using a double boiler, glass bowl over a pot of simmering water (don’t let the bottom of the bowl touch the water) or the microwave. Stir to combine and then stir through the marshmallows until they are melted.
Pour the chocolate mix over the popcorn and stir to mix. Pour into greased tray and cool. Once cooled, break into chunks and enjoy!
