Author Notes

It was so fun to get out the whirly pop and make some interesting popcorn recipes. I like to serve these little Popcorn Bites on small plates (with a napkin). You can either let the chocolate and caramel harden or serve them gooey. Good both ways. —coffeefoodwrite

What You'll Need
  • 1-14 ounces package caramels
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 8 ounces dark chocolate (60% or above)
  • 10 cups popped popcorn (I like heirloom popcorns or White Cat Corn – hull very tender – I also like to pop corn in grape seed oil – reaches a very high temp. and is light and almost flavorless)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter - melted
  • More butter for buttering baking sheet
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt for popcorn
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt for caramel
  • more sea salt or fluer de sel for sprinkling on top
  1. Melt caramels, heavy cream and 1/8 tsp. sea salt over medium low heat.
  2. Melt dark chocolate over double boiler or bowl set over pan of simmering water.
  3. Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper on a baking sheet and butter it. Place popcorn on top in a thin layer.
  4. Drizzle popcorn with the melted butter and sprinkle with ¼ tsp. sea salt.
  5. Drizzle on melted chocolate and then drizzle on warm caramel. Sprinkle with more sea salt.
