Hot Chocolate Popcorn

One of our families favorite things to do on the weekends is family movie night. What family movie night wouldn't be complete without popcorn? Plain popcorn just doesn't work in this house. It always has to have a little something sweet thrown in, like M&M's or Reece's Pieces. Nothing is yummier than that salty and sweet combo! This is one of my all time favorite sweet popcorn recipes. Be warned, it is very addicting!


Hot Cocoa Popcorn Recipe


Ingredients:

2 bags regular or lightly buttered microwave popcorn, popped and kernels removed
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 packet powdered hot chocolate mix
1 12oz bag Wilton vanilla candy melts
1/4 cup melted semi sweet chocolate.

Directions:

Mixed popped pop corn and marshmallows together in a large bowl. 
Melt candy melts according to package directions.
Pour melted candy over popcorn/marshmallow mixture. Stir to coat popcorn.
Spread mixture over waxed paper and immediately sprinkle with powdered cocoa mix.
Drizzle melted semi sweet chocolate over top. 
Let set until all candy and chocolate have hardened. Serve. 
Store in an air tight container.

  2. Mmmmm looks delicious! Movie nights are big in our family as well, and we LOVE popcorn! I wonder if there's an alternative to the Wilton candy melts? The ones here have allergy warnings on them. I will have to give this recipe a try sometime! Thanks for sharing =)
