Popcorn, check. Chocolate, check.
If you’re looking for a satisfying treat, then this chocolate covered popcorn with Conversation Hearts, is the one for you! Simple to make with no hard to find ingredients, you can whip this up in no time.
What you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup conversation hearts
These measurements are more guesstimates of the handfuls I grabbedwhile making this. If you like more chocolate, add more chocolate – ditto on the hearts.
Pop your kernels and then lay them on a sheet of parchment on a cookie sheet.
I used my blender to chop up the conversation hearts a bit so they weren’t so big, a couple of pulses was all it took.
Lay them out over the popcorn.
In 20 second increments, melt your chocolate in a microwaveable bowl until all your chips are melted. Using a fork, drizzle chocolate all across the top. I stuck the tray outside in our frigid temps to harden the chocolate quicker. Once that was done I broke up the popcorn pieces and gave them a mix laying them out flat again. I drizzled another layer of chocolate overtop and again set it outside to harden.
Once your chocolate has set, fill your favorite tin and enjoy! This would make a great gift for a teacher or neighbor, or really anyone for that matter!
It’s also the perfect treat for date night with that someone special in your life. Netflix & chill…& chocolate popcorn!
