Chocolate Covered Salted and Sweet Popcorn Bars

I love popcorn. I don’t know what it is that makes it so addictive that you carry on eating it even though you know it’ll be stuck in your teeth for hours afterwards. I think popcorn is responsible for starting a lot of arguments; queuing at the cinema inevitably results in the question, “Salted or sweet popcorn”? and the ensuing debate afterwards discussing the merits of both flavours.

If I had to choose it would be sweet. Fortunately I no longer have to make this decision as the ingenious people from Toasted have made the ultimate popcorn; sweet and salt. If ever there was a day to rival the invention of sliced bread it has to be this. Never again do we need to decide and end up wishing we’d had the other. This popcorn deserved to be treated to something a little special.

You will need:
300g milk chocolate (I used Milka with Daim)
A few large handfuls of popcorn (salted and sweet ideally)
100g white chocolate

Start by breaking up the milk chocolate and melting it in a large bowl set over a pan of water. I always have the pan on the lowest heat possible so as not to overheat the chocolate. When the chocolate has melted, mix the popcorn into the chocolate until it is evenly coated. Press this into a greased dish and allow to set.

When it is set, chop the block up into bars and put onto some greaseproof paper. Melt the white chocolate in the same way as the milk chocolate and use to decorate the top of the popcorn bars. Not only does it look nice it also helps to stick any rogue bits of popcorn to the bar.

If popcorn is addictive it’s nothing compared to these chocolate covered popcorn bars. I’m embarrassed to say that I ate three in quick succession as soon as the chocolate was set. The popcorn was light and distinctive with the sweetness and the salt working with the chocolate. The Daim added a great texture and flavour and the white chocolate a finished luxury.
Also; thank you very much for your kind messages over the last week or so, they are very much appreciated.

    SERIOUSLY lush Caroline! Although I am a savoury person, a cheese and biscuits lover etc I DO prefer SWEET popcorn, and so this recipe would suit me down to the ground!

    Like you, I could not stop at just one piece of this. Your choice of milk chocolate with Daim pieces makes it even more dangerous.
    This sounds soooo good. Love it. Bookmarking for cinema nights with the kids x
