There is nothing more magical and satisfying that hearing that “popping ” noise coming from a pan on the hob. And the smell that fills your house is amazing! It smells like you’re living at the cinema! I urge you to go and buy a bag of popcorn kernels and give it a go. Maybe this recipe (adapted from Cooking Classy) will help tempt you.
This is what you will need to make the best popcorn EVER! (Makes about 4 x 40g servings)
- 100g Popcorn Kernels
- 50g White Chocolate
- 33g/3 x Oreo Biscuits
Pulse the Oreo biscuits in a blender – not so much that it turns into a powder, you want a good amount of texture.
Melt the white chocolate in a large glass bowl over barely simmering water or in a microwave.
Cook the popcorn according to the packet instructions. Mine simply said to put the kernels in a large pan and heat over a low heat with a lid on for about 10 minutes. Shaking occasionally until the kernels starts to pop. Then shake more frequently to ensure that all the kernels pop until it completely stops.
Pour the popped corn out onto a large lined baking sheet.
Randomly drizzle over the white chocolate and sprinkle over all the crushed Oreo crumbs. Mix a little with two spoons then leave in a cool place for the chocolate to set.
Considering how down right amazing this snack is – it’s not bad at all for 200 calories!! I can’t wait to play around with more flavours, maybe even try a few savoury popcorn recipes. The Mr has already got me loving the simple salted butter popcorn and he wants to try a batch with some American chips seasoning on. I think it’s an ace idea!
Hope I’ve inspired you all to get popping!
