I saw this on Butter and Brioche the other day and I had to give this a crack with my favourite chocolate brand, Whittakers. I am from the town where Whittakers chocolate is made so this is the ONLY chocolate I use in baking. Any kiwi knows how AMAZING and DELICIOUS their chocolate is.. especially the milk. Mmmmm! This recipe has the perfect amount of salt, sweet and crunch and when I dropped half a tray off to friends, it was gone before I left!
– 4 Tbsp popcorn
– 250g Whittakers Dark Chocolate (If you can’t get this where you’re from… then use a good quality substitute)
– 100g butter, cubed
– 3 Tbsp golden syrup
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/4 tsp salt
– 100g craisins (dried cranberries)
– 100g white chocolate
– Pinch of sea salt (optional)
What to do
– Line a 20cm square tray with baking paper.
– Pop popcorn using your preferred method. Pan + oil, air popper etc (I use an air popper) and place in a bowl.
– Melt Whittakers dark chocolate in a heat safe bowl over a pot of boiling water. Once melted, stir in butter, golden syrup, salt and cinnamon.
– Add craisins to popcorn and pour in the chocolate mixture. Give that mix a good stir!
– Place popcorn chocolate mix into lined tray. Press down mix and chill to set for 60 minutes.
– Melt white chocolate, same was as the dark, and drizzle over the slice. If you want to add the sea salt to the top, nows the time!Â Return to the fridge to set. I left mine in the fridge for a total of about 2 hours, partly because I got busy and it was PERFECT.
– Turn out and cut into chunks.
*I tested a bit before drizzling the white chocolate and found that it was just enough salt for me without the extra on top so I didn’t add the sea salt
