Salted Caramel Popcorn with Chocolate Drizzle

May 10, 2014 | No Comments

Happy Mother’s Day to everyone!!! This is the perfect Mother’s Day treat. Salty, sweet, crunchy, buttery goodness. This is week 19 of my New Year’s resolution to post at least once a week for 52 weeks. My personal goal just happens to coincide with Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Cooking Challenge. This week’s Reddit theme is caramelization. We had family movie night tonight, and I made salted caramel popcorn, with chocolate drizzle in honor of the occasion.

I used about a cup of popcorn, making sure I only included the popped corn. Turns out I missed a few kernels, and almost broke a tooth. Be very careful.

Here is the bowl of salted caramel popcorn without the chocolate drizzle. It was really delicious!

I added a drizzle of semi sweet chocolate, to the salted caramel popcorn, and it was stunning, and scrumptious. With or without the drizzle, I hope you give this recipe a try. It makes a full half sheet tray. If you are so inclined, share with family and friends.
