Chocolate Covered Puffcorn

This sweet yummy treat will have your sweetheart begging for more.

After Christmas a friend of mine introduced me to Puffcorn!
Have you tried it?
It’s the perfect alternative to popcorn!
It has all the taste and flavor of popcorn without the nasty kernels,
so it’s easier on your teeth and gums.

This same friend told me to try it with chocolate drizzled on it!……..

This stuff is sinful people!!

It’s an irresistible treat

and SOOOO simple!!

What you need for Chocolate Drizzled Puffcorn:

  • Puffcorn
  • melted white or milk chocolate candy melts
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Wax paper
  • small ziplock bagHow to make chocolate puffcorn at TidyMom.net
  1. Buy a bag of Chester’s Puffcorn, spread out on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
  2. Place about 1 cup of melting wafers into a small ziplock bag (unsealed) and microwave for about 10 seconds to soften.
  3. Massage the wafers in the bags and microwave again for about 10 seconds. Repeat this until the candy is smooth (about 1 minute). Be very careful not to melt the ziplock bags. If you find this is happening, just melt the wafers in a small dish and transfer them to bags when they are melted. Press out excess air from the bags and seal them.
  4. Snip a small corner from the bag (about 1/16-inch).

    we eat this puffcorn all the time in our house (not that we should cause it's kinda' fattening–heck, what isn't??)
    but when you said put chocolate on it I went like–yeah!
    maybe it's my pregnancy or just the fact that I can't seem to fill that salty sweet craving I've had lately but….mmmmmm boy–you are soooooo right!

    We LOVE puffcorn! My hubby can't have popcorn anymore because of Diverticulitis so puffcorn has been a great substitute for him! He still misses popcorn, but puffcorn definately gives him something to much on, and we all love it! I will definately try this, thanks so much for the tip!

    Wow that puffcorn has 11 grams of fat per serving – way higher than popcorn would have and I would really advise against microwaving anything in plastic bags – they are not meant to withstand heat and leach dangerous chemicals into your food – google it.

    Just not worth it for a yummy snack.

    Ooooh, that looks so good. Just missed Valentine’s Day, but maybe I’ll make that for Easter or Mother’s day. Might be a great snack to just “have around” too! ;-)

    Thanks for posting.
