I’m sure you have noticed how obsessed with fun popcorn I have become. Have you seen this Reese’s Popcorn, this Coffee Toffee Popcorn, and this S’mores Popcorn. Yeah, I love creating (and eating) fun new popcorn.
I decided to cover this popcorn with a healthy coating of white chocolate and Nutella and some salt.
I couldn’t stop eating handfuls of this while it was in our kitchen. Something kept drawing me back to the bowl for more and more. And for research purposes, I just kept munching. This Nutella Popcorn is magical I tell you!
I love a good sweet and salty treat, and this popcorn has both covered. The salt helps balance out the super sweet coating and M&M candies. I love how the candy gave it a fun and bright pop of color. This would be the perfect snack for watching the Oscars this weekend. You might want to make a double batch if you have anyone else watching with you. I know we will be munching the night away.
Yes, I know Valentine’s just ended, but I was over the pink and red, so of course I thought of the next holiday. The best thing with this popcorn is that you can tint that extra drizzle of chocolate any color for any holiday. The M&M’s can be changed out for the different holidays too. I just happen to love those plain mini M&M’s…and it’s what I had in the cupboard that day.
If you are giving this away for St. Patty’s Day, place it in clear plastic bags or jars and tie with a ribbon or some green twine. Thank you Pick Your Plum for keeping me supplied with fun twine colors.
Game nights and marathon movies are the perfect excuse for making this big batch of Nutella Popcorn. Really it is a good snack any day or time of the week.
