The Best Popcorn You'll Ever Eat



Last week we had a bake sale to raise money for breast cancer research. After all, it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And I decided to make individually bagged popcorn treats. My favorite easy treat to make. Its a recipe my Aunt Chris gave to my mom and I after having it at a party and craving it for forever! And it was so easy which was super surprising for how delicious it is. You'd think it was a complicated gourmet recipe or something. Oh its so ridiculously good. Anyway here are some pics....







I decided to put them into little muffin papers so they were a little bit more on the cute side and would be less messy. AND I loved the pastel colors. They turned out looking like little popcorn cupcakes and I loved it.


Needless to say, they were a big hit! And I had extras to take to the weekly "girls night" with my neighbors. Here's What you'll need:

2 bags buttered popcorn, popped and dumped out onto a tray covered in wax paper
2 sticks of butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 c karo syrup (light)
bag of white chocolate chips
bag of milk chocolate chips

Directions:
Cover tray with wax paper, pop popcorn and spread out on pan. Bring butter, sugar and karo syrup to a boil. Boil for 2 and 1/2 minutes then pour over popcorn on the trays. You may need to stir it a little bit to make sure it all gets covered.
*Melt white chocolate first in 30 second intervals on medium heat (in the microwave) and drizzle over the popcorn with a fork
Then melt milk chocolate and repeat.
Let sit and enjoy! mmmmmm

*if you melt the white chocolate first you can use the same container to melt the milk chocolate. If you do it the other way around your white chocolate wont be as pretty, but do what you will!

Let me know if you try it and if you like it!
Happy Wednesday!
