I don't include quantities in this as you can load it up with as many sweets and as much melted chocolate as you'd like. For a 125g large bag of popcorn, I used 8 ounces of melted Bakers semi-sweet chocolate.
  • lightly salted (not buttered) popcorn
  • jelly beans
  • gum drops
  • pretzels (broken into pieces)
  • candy coated chocolates like M&M's or Sixlets
  • Baker's semi-sweet chocolate, melted
  1. Line a cookie sheet (or two, depending how large of a batch you are making) with wax paper.
  2. Spread popcorn out on wax paper. You'll want a single layer of popcorn only so that you can evenly cover it all with chocolate later.
  3. Scatter jelly beans, gum drops, pretzels and candy coated chocolates over popcorn.
  4. Drizzle melted chocolate over the mixture.
  5. Place cookie sheet(s) in fridge for about 30 minutes until chocolate has completely hardened.
  6. Break into pieces and store in a resealable food storage bag. Keep this stored in the fridge so the chocolate doesn't melt.
