Chocolate Popcorn~with homemade microwave popcorn

Seriously loving this quick and easy treat lately! I am now keeping these wilton wafers on hand along with popcorn and its all ready in 10 minutes.  It’s as easy at 1.2.3!

Step 1:  Pop a bag of popcorn.

Step 2: Melt some chocolate.  Its fun to have colorful (Wilton wafers) but chips or almond bark work as well. DO NOT OVERCOOK chocolate….melting a little and stirring inbetween helps loosen the big chunks of chocolate.

Step 3:  Dump melted chocolate on popcorn in a large container and shake, shake, shake. (I make sure all the uncooked kernals are out before this).

Place it in the freezer for 5 minutes and shake, shake, shake again. I like it cold, but its all ready to enjoy now!  Yum yum and a crowd favorite!  I use plain popcorn and add a little salt after the chocolate it on, but I have also tried the pre buttered and it gives it a bit of a sweet/salty flavor, too.

Now…have you ever heard of homemade microwave popcorn? I had heard of the process but never tried it until recently and it works amazingly!  Grap a bag of kernals (

Dump it into a plain old lunch sack.  About 1 cup.

Fold and tape the bag closed.

Lay it down flat and cook. I have a “popcorn” button, but about 2 minutes.

And it overflows out!


Enjoy this tasty treat!!!

    My 10-year old daughter is a serious popcorn lover AND chocoholic, so I can’t wait to try making this for her tonight! I recently tried Orville Redenbacher’s caramel corn, and it’s surprisingly like what you just described, except with caramel instead of chocolate. I can do that myself without buying a special package! Thanks for the great idea.

  3. Can’t wait to try the chocolate popcorn & I happen to have some Wilton’s Melts on hand :)
    Never heard of the homemade microwave popcorn but will have to try it out. Very interesting! Thanks for sharing your results.
