Equipment

Trays

Notes

Popcorn
- I have basic microwave popcorn. I found some ‘movie theater’ butter flavor popcorn. You can use your favorite flavor microwave popcorn or you can make it the good old fashioned way with the kernels and a pan of oil.

Chocolate
- I used bakers semisweet chunks, you can use any chocolate you find

Step 2: Make the popcorn

Use the microwave and cook according to instructions
Or
Heat olive oil in a pan, throw the kernels in and cover with a lid. Listen for the pops, don’t burn, season

Step 3: Melt the Chocolate

Step 7: Make the Chilli Sugar

Put a few drops of hot sauce in the sugar - this is really fiery hot sauce so I only used a small amount.

Step 8: Mix

Mix with a fork until fully incorporated

Step 9: Sugar the Popcorn

You have to work fast because you want the chocolate to still be sticky when you apply the sugar so it sticks

Put the sugar in a sieve, push it through with a spoon.

Mix

Step 10: Fridge

If you cant wait and need to eat this straight away then go ahead. BUT you will get covered in chocolate. If you have kids expect chocolate hand prints all over the walls. If you can wait then fridge these yummy snacks for at least 30 mins.

Ideas
You could try using colored sugar
You could try different flavor chocolate/popcorn

Presentation
For the cover Pic I individually dipped the popped corn in the chocolate and sugar - You don’t have to do that unless your writing and instructable or working for a food magazine!!
