Salted Chocolate Caramel Popcorn | | #popcorn #recipe #caramel #chocolate

Hey! It’s Friday! Time to eat popcorn!?!

I consume an embarrassing amount of popcorn. Em.barrass.iiiiing.

What’s worse is that it’s not just any ol’ popcorn. It sorta, kinda looks like this Salted Chocolate Caramel Popcorn.

Ok, so it is this popcorn.

I’m crazy about it. I can’t keep my hands out of the bowl. I may or may not have added it to my bowl of cereal… And topped my ice cream with it…

In fact, I look forward to the weekends so I can have an excuse to make it because, as we all know, weekend calories don’t count. You shush! This is my world blog. :-D

That’s also why I chose to post this recipe on a Friday – to get you ready for the weekEND!

You know what’s also embarrassing? How easy this recipe is. Seriously. All you have to do is pop some kernels, make the caramel, throw in some chocolate chips and voila! You can prepare it during the introductory credits of that movie you’re about to watch this weekend.

    What is the unit for the temperature? Celsius or fahrenheit?

      Hi! The temperature is in Fahrenheit. Hope you have a chance to try out the recipe. :)

    This looks amazing. I might have to stop at the store on the way home tonight to stock up on ingredients.

    I will probably try to do all the mixing directly in the Whirley Pop. Has anyone tried this?

    After mixing all the ingredients together – instead of baking it for 30 minutes try putting the mixture into a paper grocery bag (fold over the top) and microwave for a minute and a half. Remove bag from microwave and shake bag. Microwave again for another minute and remove. Dump contents onto wax paper and let cool. Sooo much faster than baking!

    Oh, boy…there isn’t a variety of popcorn I don’t like, but this version ranks close to the top! Big time yum!

    I’m a little tired today (and still Tues! UGH!), and all I want to do is to make these popcorn and watch TV/movies! Thanks for writing unpopped popcorn amount. I can’t wait to make this. It’s very dangerous but it will make me super happy!

    I want to watch movies together — you make the most delish and creative popcorns!

    Well the popcorn we eat on the weekENDS is boring compared to this! We would definitely be eating a lot more popcorn if I served it like this. What a great snack!

    Yes, finally someone concurs – what we eat on the weekend has absolutely no merit. Thank you! :D

    Now, if you’ll please excuse me, I’m going to make some of this fabulous popcorn.

    It´s about time I made popcorn as yummy as this one! I can pretty much eat this all day too. It will make for a good weekend!

    I must confess. I’ve an urge to get a bowlful of reddiwhip (yeah, I eat it by the bowlful sometimes) and top it with this.

    I love popcorn so much…that I have a popcorn board. Pinned this there!

    And I would be eating handfuls of this stuff – chocolate + caramel. Oh, wow. Nice!!

    Popcorn is the new rage right now it seems! I have been popping a lot of it, to the benefit of my kids! This looks great!

    Oh my! I just love popcorn. This looks sooooo naughty but oh so good. I also love chocolate with a bit of heat…….mmmmm…..I wonder if some sprinkling of cayenne in the choc is worth a try. Popcorn with a bit more pop! I think so!

    • Katerina Petrovska April 12, 2013 at 10:09 PM - Reply

      OMG! Nancy, that’s an awesome idea!! I am SO going to add crvena piper to my next batch!! :-D

    Oh, this popcorn look dangerously delicious!!!
    I’m so glad those weekend calories don’t count…I know I’ll just make a meal out of this popcorn and I won’t have any of those pesky calories from foods like chicken or veggies;-)

  22. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious April 12, 2013 at 4:52 PM - Reply

    YES! I could snack on these all day – and I wouldn’t be able to stop!
