We are at the start of a really cold spell, high of about 6 today. Perfect day for breaking out the popcorn popper for a hot from the stove afternoon snack. Thought maybe others looking for inspiration in the kitchen would enjoy this as well.
Today, after the obligatory "normal" batch (salt and butter) we decided for something different. Nathan, 3, wanted caramel.
So, 1/4 cup oil,
1/4 cup brown sugar and
about 1/2 cup popcorn.
When it was almost done, I thought, "Isn't everything better with chocolate?"
So, I threw in about 1/2 cup chocolate chips that melted all over the caramel batch.
My kids' responses:
"Chocolate power" (not sure what that means)
"These would probably be REALLY good if we let it harden." Yeah, probably, but the world will never know.
