Halloween Candy Corn Chocolate Popcorn


Halloween Candy Corn Chocolate Popcorn

Now that it’s October, I can finally accept that Halloween is around the corner. Sorry but I refuse to look at black and orange until October 1 (despite stores everywhere shoving Halloween AND Christmas in your face mid-summer). As with every holiday, there are all kinds of festive treats to brighten the holiday, like this Halloween Candy Corn Chocolate Popcorn I threw together on a whim. Imagine salty popcorn covered in melted chocolate and tossed with candy corn, marshmallows, and sprinkles. No need to roll it into popcorn balls. Just toss together and eat in only a few minutes.

This Halloween Candy Corn Chocolate Popcorn is very easy to throw together for a last-minute festive treat, whether you need a quick snack at your party or to fill up treat bags for the kids. I will warn you that this is a very sweet treat because candy corn on its own is sweet, let alone pairing it with chocolate, marshmallows, and sprinkles. The popcorn does have enough salt to pair really well with the sugar. I opted for microwave butter popcorn that was already salted, but if you pop kernels on the stove top, just be sure to throw in salt.

Not going to lie – making this popcorn was a mess with all that chocolate. If you don’t like candy corn, you can always substitute M&Ms. They have white chocolate candy corn if you want to keep the idea of candy corn or you can use the plain fall colored ones.

This Halloween Candy Corn Chocolate Popcorn is best eaten the same day, although you can get away with eating it the next day. Good thing this only takes a few minutes to throw together. Now you don’t have an excuse for not fresh popcorn ;)

  1. I think each year I have to eat a couple pieces of candy corn just for the nostalgia of it all. I think it being inside this will make it better. Chocolate covered is certainly a way to go.

  2. Carla, you’re torturing me again! Pass the bowl over and no one will get hurt, hehe. I’m with you about the stores rushing the holidays, I really don’t need to see Christmas lights in July.

  3. This is definitely an October treat … So cute, too :-)
