Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place 1 bag popcorn in the microwave; cook on high until popping begins to slow down, about 2 1/2 minutes. Repeat with remaining bags. Open bags carefully; divide popcorn between 2 shallow baking dishes. Mix in peanuts.

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C).

  • Combine brown sugar, margarine, corn syrup, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring enough to blend. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; mix in vanilla extract and baking soda until mixture is light and foamy.

  • Pour brown sugar mixture over the popcorn-peanut mixture; stir to coat.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 25 minutes, until a cooled piece of popcorn is crunchy, about 1 hour.

  • Line a flat work surface with waxed paper. Pour popcorn onto the waxed paper. Break up any large clusters.

  • Melt chocolate almond bark in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring after each melting, 1 to 3 minutes. Pour into a resealable plastic bag; snip off 1 corner. Drizzle melted chocolate over popcorn. Let popcorn cool completely.

This was very easy to make and oh! So good! I added white almond bark and M&Ms to make it a little more festive for the holidays. Will definitely make again. I didn t use microwave popcorn but popped 2 pans full on the stovetop. Much healthier if it makes any difference after you add all that sugary sweetness! Read More
