This Week's Cravings: Chocolate!

It's chocolate week... need we explain? I wish I had a scratch'n'sniff computer screen for all the wonderful recipes I know are being added! This is probably one of my favorite themes - because chocolate is one of my favorite things.

Even so... today's recipe was a challenge. I just couldn't decide! Until I saw this bacon popcorn Buns in my Oven and it struck me. Popcorn. Bacon. I love chocolate covered popcorn. I love chocolate covered bacon...... so why not?


It. Is. Fabulous.

Chocolate-Bacon Popcorn

  • Popcorn

  • Bacon

  • Chocolate (almond bark)
  1. Pop desired amount of popcorn. I made some old-school with 1 cup kernels and a couple tablespoons vegetable oil on my stove top.

  2. Spread popcorn on wax-paper covered baking sheets.

  3. Melt chocolate - I used 3 squares - in a small bowl. Alternate microwaving 45 seconds and stirring until just melted. Drizzle over popcorn.

  4. While popcorn sets, cook up some bacon till crisp. Transfer to paper towels; let them absorb as much oil as possible.

  5. Crumble popcorn and toss with chocolate-popcorn.

Try not to eat it all at once. Like my husband and I did.

Seriously, and I am always serious about food.... popcorn is my very favorite food in the world (the ONLY way to make it is old school), followed closely by good chocolate and I feel that bacon makes EVERYTING better. So I am stumped why I did not think of this first!!!!
But I am sure glad you did! I am making this today... it is Dinner and a Movie night at StoneGable. And this popcorn is dinner.
I have never been to your meme! Hope to join in soon. Skipping with joy over this post!
Thanks so much!
