Green Slimed Popcorn



Beaulah loves the color green.

She feels like it compliments her skin tones.



I would agree, they are both green!
(I bet you didn't even know that her little bag
has a lid that comes off and you can put
treats in it.  So she can carry around both treats
and cookies.)

And yes, she knows she is missing 
a few teeth, but she thinks it fits her 
whole persona!



She was messing around in the kitchen
the other day and came up with this recipe
for Green Slimed Popcorn.


I like to think of it as 
White Chocolate Covered Popcorn
with a greenish tint.



This is one of those "I can make it in under 10 minutes"
treats.  It is great for neighbor treats.

Green Slimed Popcorn
or 
Green Chocolate Covered Popcorn

1 regular bag microwave popcorn
(If you choose to air pop the popcorn
you need to add a salt as it won't taste 
as good without the sweet/salty combo.)
1 1/4 C. white chocolate coating discs
Americolor's Neon Green Food Coloring Gel

Place popcorn bag in microwave and while it 
is popping, place the coating discs in a microwave
safe bowl.  When popcorn is done, remove it and
place chocolate discs in microwave.  Melt for one
minute, then stir whether it looks like it is melted or
not (this keeps it from scorching).  Melt it for another 30 
seconds, then stir again.  If it needs any more time, 
microwave it in 10 second intervals.  Remove and
stir until smooth.  Add green food coloring gel until
you get the color of green you want.

Place warm popcorn in large bowl then pour the
melted green chocolate over the popcorn and
toss gently over and over until you have completely
coated the popcorn.

Place a sheet of parchment paper on a large
baking sheet and pour the chocolate covered
popcorn out on the pan.  Let cool until the chocolate
is firm.




 (Chocolate covered popcorn is cooling here.)




Serve as desired.  I had these cupcake
wrappers that I bought last year from
Wilton and I placed short plastic cups
inside the wrapper and served them
like this for a dinner.   We called it 
their "green salad".  



Everyone wants to get their hands on this 
yummy treat!

I have to warn you that it is 
WICKEDLY ADDICTIVE.

The salty popcorn with the sweet and silky
"chocolate" is a great combination.

Of course you could make this with any
color added, orange, black, or red and green
for Christmas.  It is so yummy and so easy.

I will be posting this with

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  2. I love popcorn and I love chocolate, so this is definitely a winning combo for me. I think I'll make it in red and green for Christmas for my teacher friends. Thanks for the great idea. I also like that you used cups in the cupcake holders. Another good tip to file away.

  23. This sounds delicious and simple...right up my alley. I will have to make up a batch for my kiddo this afternoon to take to her Wizard of Oz play rehearsal. I think I will package them with a fun and fast little witch hat tag. She'd be thrilled to share these with her witchy and non-witchy cast mates. Too fun! Thanks again for making me look good! ;)

  32. Going to try this but wondering is the good coloring neccesary for the consistency ? Or can I use Wilton green melts

    ReplyDelete
  33. Do you have to use the coating discs or do you think white chocolate chips would work just as well? Thanks!

  35. This looks like the perfect Halloween treat to share at my work potluck. How far in advance can I make this? or How long will it last (if I can manage to not eat it all)? Thanks for the awesome idea!

  36. This is exactly the kind of thing i was looking for to bring to my work Halloween potluck!

    How far in advance can I make this? aka How long will it last if i can manage to not eat it all?

    Thank you!

  37. It should stay good for several days in an airtight container. I live in the West where it is dry so we can keep it for days. If you live where it is humid, it will go soggy if uncovered.
