Gourmet Popcorn with Candy Bars and Pretzels

I have a thing for candied popcorn and I’m constantly trying new versions. Popcorn with candy bars and various add-ins is a great way to get that salty/sweet flavor combination that so many love!

You can switch up the candies you add into your popcorn bowl based on your flavor preferences. Snicker or Twix? Chop ’em up and mix ’em in! Peanut Butter M&Ms? Absolutely! This Kit Kat Popcorn is the perfect sweet and salty snack that will satisfy your sweet tooth cravings!

What Is Gourmet Popcorn

Gourmet popcorn is a delicious treat you can make from home or order online. There are plenty of different things you can use to flavor the popcorn like candies, cheese, caramel and chocolate.  There are a lot of companies that sell it but why make yourself a homemade batch and save yourself a lot of money in the process.  This homemade gourmet popcorn recipe is really simple to make and you won’t be able to stop eating it.

How To Make Homemade Gourmet Popcorn

  1. Pop a bag of microwave popcorn according to the directions on the package
  2. Lay out the popcorn on a baking sheet
  3. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 30 seconds.  If they haven’t fully melted, continue to heat them in 15 second increments until completely melted
  4. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the popcorn
  5. Sprinkle the chopped Kit Kat bars and pretzel sticks over the popcorn
  6. Mix everything together
  7. You can eat it immediately but I prefer to let the chocolate cool and harder before eating

How Long Do You Cook Popcorn In The Microwave

I always start by cooking the popcorn in the microwave according to the directions on the package.  However, because every microwave is different, I will stand by the microwave during the last 30 seconds and listen for when the popcorn stops popping.  If there is about 3 seconds between “pops”, I’ll stop the microwave and take it out and it comes out perfect every time!

How Long Will Gourmet Popcorn Last

While gourmet popcorn is usually gone the night my family makes it, but if you happen to have any left, be sure to store it in an airtight container.  If stored properly it should stay fresh for up to a week.
