This popcorn is packed with pretzels, chocolate dipped licorice and tons of sprinkles. It’s a perfect combo for everyone in my family!
When we do movie night, it’s strictly family time. The computers get closed and the phones are put away. No distractions – no sneaking off. Just the three of us for a kid-friendly movie followed by something for adults. This week it was Rio 2 (yes, again) then on to Divergent.
Did you read the book Divergent? I did and I loved it. The movie follows the book pretty well, however it has been a while since I’ve read it so my memory may be a bit fuzzy on the details. I did not really enjoy book three of the series. Did you? It was not what I was expecting…
Anyway, I’m reading the Outlander series and LOVING it! I’m on book five, The Fiery Cross, and I’ve just started watching the series on Starz! Oh my, what a hunk Sam Heughan is! Yes, please!
Movie Theater Popcorn
- Melt a cup of chocolate chips and break the licorice into three pieces. Dip the licorice into the chocolate and lay on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Add sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet. I used about five pieces of licorice. Place the completed cookie tray into the fridge and pop your popcorn. I popped 3/4 cup kernels in my Whirley-Pop Stovetop Popcorn Popper. You may want two bags of microwave popcorn.
- Turn the popcorn out on to a second lined cookie sheet and toss in a cup of broken pretzel pieces. Drizzle the remaining melted chocolate over the popcorn and pretzels and add sprinkles and some salt.
- Toss in the chocolate licorice and serve it up. The chocolate on the popcorn won’t be hard, but I like it that way. It’s finger linking good!
