Decorated Popcorn

Thank you to all the wonderful teachers out there!  X-man’s school assigns themes for each day of Teacher Appreciation Week.  Monday was Love Note Day, Tuesday was Beauty Pampering Day, and today was Relax & Enjoy a Movie Day.  We decided to make a fun sweet & salty popcorn munchie for Movie Day, and this is what we came up with.  Xavier named it Decorated Popcorn because it looks so beautiful with the chocolate & pink drizzles all over it.  It’s a super simple gift that the teachers are sure to enjoy!  J

Decorated Popcorn
Yields:  2 gift bags

1 microwave bag of Kettle Corn, popped
1/2 C salted, roasted peanuts
1 C dark chocolate melts
1 C white chocolate melts (we went with pink because X thought it was the prettiest for his teachers)  J

Melt the chocolates in the microwave at 50% power for 1 minute and mix.  Continue to microwave at 50% power at 30-second intervals, mixing in between, until smooth. 

Lay out the popcorn on a sheet pan, drizzle with the chocolates, add the peanuts making sure you get them onto the chocolate so they stick.  Set it in the fridge and allow to harden for about 10 minutes.  Break it up & through into gift bags.   We doubled the recipe to make 2 more for the principal & vice principal.  ;-)
