For my friend’s, Lauren Schumacher, birthday this past weekend I made this delicious and addicting popcorn. Omg… I couldn’t stop eating it! A few weeks ago she messaged me about this awesome popcorn she tried that had chocolate on it. So, I knew right away that for her birthday weekend down in Gruene, TX two big bowls of party popcorn would be the perfect snack.
There are so many ways you could change this up but I wanted this batch to have a “snickers” type flavor, so I went with peanuts.
1 bag of movie theater butter popcorn (I used 4 bags but I was making it for the masses)
Dip chocolate (the kind you dip strawberries in and it hardens)
Pop the popcorn and immediately put into a large mixing bowl. Shake in about a half a cup of peanuts. I mixed in the toffee pieces but in hind sight wished I would have melted them first and then drizzled them over the popcorn.
To melt the toffee, put about a cup of pieces in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds and stir, repeat until completely melted.
Then drizzle over the popcorn and peanuts, stirring and mixing frequently.
Then with a fork, drizzle melted chocolate over popcorn mixture. Mix and drizzle frequently until it looks evenly dispersed throughout.
Happy Birthday Schumacher!
