Sweet Popcorn Recipe Ingredient List
- 1 packet of popcorn, or 4 cups of popped popcorn
*you can use microwave popcorn, this super cool popcorn popper machine or even prepare the popcorn in a bit of oil on the stove. My favorite choice because of ease and time is definitely the microwave version or a popcorn machine. Although childhood memories of stovetop popcorn sometimes beat the former options.
If it is time to invest in a new microwave popcorn popper I can strongly recommend the very affordable HOTPOP Silicone Maker. Fast, easy and it goes straight from microwave oven to dishwasher. My favorite kind of kitchen tool!
- 1 cup of almond, walnuts, pecan nuts or any nut of your choice
- 150g chocolate, white, milk or dark
- And, then for the yummy bit
Smarties, mini marshmallows, M&Ms, mini Easter eggs or any sweet chocolates or candies of your choice

Sweet Popcorn Recipe Steps
Prepare 1 packet of popcorn according to the instructions in the microwave, popcorn machine or stove top, and leave to cool.
While waiting spread 1 cup of blanched almonds (or the nuts of your choice) flat onto a baking sheet.
You can use any baking sheet, this is my favorite and very affordable baking sheet from Farberware. The non-stick covering ensures easy cleaning and even browning. My kitchen cannot run without this little beauty!
Roast the nuts in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius for about 3 minutes or until golden brown, taking care not to burn. Roasted pecan nuts are a great alternative to the almonds. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
The next Sweet Popcorn Recipe Step
Melt 150g of milk, dark or white chocolate in the microwave oven at a low temperature and set aside to cool.
A small glass bowl works well for me, just make sure that it is heat resistant. Pyrex bowls are always the best brand as it can go straight from the conventional or microwave oven to the dishwasher!
Flatten the cooled popcorn and nuts onto the roasting pan. Next, drizzle the melted chocolate over the spread popcorn and almonds.
And, then for the best part of this super yummy popcorn recipe
Sprinkle the most delicious array of small chocolates all over the popcorn and nuts mix. We love to add M&Ms, Smarties, and mini Easter eggs. But the options are endless…
Leave for about 10 minutes for the chocolate to set, then mix through and serve. There will not be a single crumb left of this super popcorn mix!
