I know that I can find many types of popcorn. There’s butter, extra butter, light butter, kettle corn, salt, or no salt. What if I want to try something different for my next movie night? What if I don’t want the same old humdrum popcorn? Now that my husband has brought home two cases of Boy Scout popcorn (I never knew they sold popcorn) I have plenty of chances to make my own popcorn snacks for movie night. This first one is sticky, chocolately, yummy, and the whole family will love it! Enjoy!
12 Cups Popcorn, Popped (Remove unpopped kernels)
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar, Packed
½ Cup Light corn Syrup
½ Cup Water
¼ Cup Butter
2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
10 Oz. Cherry Flavored Baking Morsels
* Optional: Dipping Chocolate, Melted (Used for drizzling)
In medium pot, bring sugars, corn syrup, water, and butter to boil. Reduce heat and mix in cocoa powder. Remove pot from heat. Pour popcorn in a large mixing bowl. Using greased mixing spoons, pour sugar mixture over popcorn and stir until popcorn is evenly coated. Line a casserole dish with greased wax paper. Pour half of the popcorn into dish. Pour all of cherry chips over popcorn. Layer the last half of popcorn over cherry chips. Drizzle dipping chocolate over popcorn. Place in refrigerator and let cool for 15 minutes and then remove and let sit at room temperature before serving.
This looks so good. I need to try this:)
