Zebra Popcorn


It is so Yummy!!!!

I saw this on Studio5 around Christmas time and I knew I just had to try it.  I am glad I did, it was a huge hit with my family and it was actually pretty easy to do.




Here is the Recipe
Ingredients:


12 cups popped corn (approx 1/2 cup un-popped)

1/2 cup butter

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup of light corn syrup

2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

6 ounces dark chocolate (approx 1 cup)

6 ounces white chocolate (approx 1 cup)

Method:
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Lightly butter a large baking sheet or two 9x13 pans, set aside. Place popped corn in large mixing bowl.
Place butter in 2-qt microwave safe bowl; microwave on high about 1 minute or until butter is melted. Add brown sugar and corn syrup; microwave on high, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Without stirring, continue to microwave for 3 minutes. Stir in vanilla and baking soda.
Drizzle syrup over popped corn; mix well to thoroughly coat popcorn with caramel. Spread popped corn on prepared pans. Bake 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove popcorn from pan, spread out on parchment paper or wax paper far enough apart so pieces do not touch. Cool.
On low heat, slowly melt dark chocolate (in double boiler, microwave, or according to package directions). In a straight thin line, drizzle dark chocolate across caramel corn (see tips below). Cool while melting white chocolate, drizzle as for the dark chocolate. Cool completely and allow chocolate to harden.
Notes:

To make even consistently thin lines place melted chocolate in disposable cake decorating bags or freezer bags; close bag tightly. Clip a small hole in the tip of the bag and squeeze or pipe chocolate across popcorn.

Try making some today.  Its sooooo good!!

  3. Oh my goshhh! This is so amazingly delicious! I Just finished making it for all my friends for Christmas and of course had to test it myself! I made of a disaster of the kitchen in the process, but I'd say it was well worth it! :)

  4. My family has a serious love for popcorn! I made this for my dad this Father's Day, and he LOVED it!! It made enough to share with everyone, too. :) Great recipe- will definitely be making this again.

  5. Found your post through Pinterest. Made the popcorn last week to try out, and I'm making it again today as a gift. I'm going to try semi-sweet chocolate, though. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I'm back! I hope you don't mind if I make a suggestion--I ended up using dark corn syrup because I was out of light. The caramel was AMAZING! It tasted a LOT better than when I used light, and I ended up not bothering to drizzle the chocolates on, because it was so darn good by itself. (I was almost out of time before the event I wanted to take it to, so it was a convenient accident.) I also used salted butter, don't know if that makes a difference or not. So, go dark!
