and is an impressive and
inexpensive gift for teachers, secret Santas, crushes—anyone, really!
One of my favorite sweet treats is this drizzled (or
drenched) chocolate-covered popcorn. It’s the perfect combination of salty and
Popcorn (Microwave popcorn is fine if its plain.)
Pinch of salt
Chocolate (Dark, milk, white or a combo—it’s your choice)
Pop and salt your corn, then melt your chocolate of choice
in a double boiler—a heat-proof bowl set inside a pot on the stove containing
boiling water; don’t let the water touch the bowl.
Spread the popcorn in a single layer on a wax paper-covered
cookie sheet and pour the chocolate on top. How heavy-handed you are with the
good stuff it totally up to you. Chill in the fridge until the chocolate sets.
Get fancy. You can
use two different types of chocolate by allowing it the chocolate set between
types. Dark chocolate with white chocolate drizzles over top is quite elegant.
Gift it! Scoop some
of your set popcorn into a clear cellophane bag and tie it with a silky ribbon.
