zebra corn

Today I’m going to share a party favorite with you! We make this every Super Bowl – and it I always end up wishing I made more. First rule- always double this recipe. It is delicious! Enjoy!

Zebra Corn

ingredients

  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 10 cups plain unsalted popcorn – takes about 1/2 cup of kernels
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • semi sweet chocolate chips
  • white chocolate chips

directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Take a large rimmed baking sheet, butter it, and set aside. Pop your popcorn and place on the baking sheet.
  2. In a saucepan or pot, bring the butter, brown sugar, and 2 tbsp of water to a boil while stirring constantly.
  3. Drizzle this syrup over the popcorn and toss to coat every piece! Spread evenly on the baking sheet. (try not to eat it all right now..this is where I struggle)
  4. Bake, tossing occasionally, until golden and shiny. Do not overcook! I usually pull it out after about 30minutes. Let it cool on buttered foil or parchment paper.
  5. Once cooled, melt the chocolate and drizzle it over the popcorn! (A little tip- once melted, put the chocolate in a ziploc baggie and cut off a little bit from the corner- makes for an easy way to drizzle and an easy clean up! Just throw the baggie in the trash!)
  6. Allow to cool until the chocolate has hardened and then store in an airtight container- if it even lasts that long!
