Its the weekend. Which means some binge watching Netflix with popcorn. We’ve all been there. At least some weekends at least. We can reveal our super simple recipe to make Homemade Chocolate Popcorn in your very own home and it couldn’t be simpler. You can even make popcorn yourself which is as good as Joe and Sephs. However we do love Joe and Sephs Caramel Sauces. These go great with popcorn you make at home.
200g Milk Chocolate
100g White Chocolate
A Bowl of Freshly Popped Popcorn
Melt the milk chocolate. Set aside the white chocolate for now. Melting chocolate in a glass bowl over a saucepan of boiling water is still the best and safest method so you do not burn the chocolate. Ensure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water.
Take your freshly popped popcorn and place it in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. (You can do this by hand if you do not have one). Attach the dough hook (bare with me here!). The dough hook attachment breaks up a minimum amount of popcorn during mixing. If you’re doing this by hand just use two large spatulas or spoon to toss the popcorn.
Turn the mixer on the lowest speed. Using a large spoon or ladle start adding the milk chocolate to the mixer. You will quickly see how the chocolate starts to get coated. The great thing about using this method is that the popcorn gets a really good coating of popcorn. Add all 200g of the melted chocolate.
As soon as all the chocolate is coating the popcorn turn off the machine.
Pour the chocolate popcorn out onto a clean baking tray. Place this in the fridge for about an hour to solidify.
Melt the white chocolate using the same method as above.
Take the tray of popcorn out of the fridge. Either using a spoon or a piping bag with the end snipped off drizzle the white chocolate over the tray of popcorn. Drizzle all of the 100g of chocolate.
Place back in the fridge for another 30 mins.
Remove and break up with your hands. It should crumble quite easily. Store in an airtight container until ready to eat (if you can resist). Best eaten within a few hours or the popcorn becomes a little soft.
