Equipment

  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Saucepan
  • Waxed paper
  • Baking sheets

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • ½ cup unpopped popcorn
  • 1 cup or 8 ounces almond bark

Instructions

  • On a large saucepan, place two tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Try testing out if the temperature is right. You can do this by putting a small number of popcorn kernels into the oil. Make sure it is about four pieces, and cover it until it pops. Afterward, place the remaining popcorn kernels in an even layer in the saucepan. And after about thirty seconds, place a lid and remove it from heat. Place it back to the heat. Then, lightly shake the saucepan back and forth over the stove for about one to two minutes.
  • After that, prepare some baking sheets and place a sheet of wax paper on each baking sheet. Then, spread out the cooked popcorn out onto a few sheets over the waxed paper.
  • On top of a double boiler and over simmering water, place the almond bark and stir periodically; make sure to scrape down the sides of the mixture in the bowl using a rubber spatula. Doing this prevents the almond bark mixture from scorching. Do this until the bark is completely melted; this process may last about five minutes or so.
  • After melting the almond bark, sprinkle or pour the mixture over the popcorn. And make sure to combine and coat the popcorn evenly. Allow the bark to dry for about thirty minutes.
  • If the bark mixture has dried up, you can place it in a serving bowl. Then, finally, serve and enjoy!

Notes

You can add your favorite sprinkles and toppings while the popcorn is warm. Doing this provides an extra flavor, and it makes it extra special. In addition to that, you can store this recipe in containers. With that, ensure it is completely cooled. So, you can begin breaking it up and placing or storing it on airtight jars. Moreover, if you prefer to pop popcorn in an air popper, then you might as well use it.
Bear in mind that you must never store unpopped popcorn in the fridge. The main reason is that the refrigerator will dry out the moisture in the kernels. For that reason, without the moisture, the popcorn will not pop. That is why the best location to store popcorn is in a dry and cool cupboard.
