I just love popcorn. Nothing like a nice big bowl of popcorn when watching a movie. Sometimes I am in the mood for something sweet and salty so I have a variety or recipes I like to make depending on what I have in my pantry. Today I am going to share a quick popcorn treat that takes just a few ingredients.
Chocolate Caramel Crunch Popcorn
You can make this using my caramel popcorn recipe or if are short on time I will show you how I do a quick caramel sauce.
This is just for a small batch - you can always double or triple the recipe.
- Popcorn – I used 1 bag of microwave popcorn
- 1 Cup Kraft Caramel Bits
- 1 Tbsp water
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- ½ cup cashews
Pop your popcorn and place it in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Melt the caramel bits by placing them in a microwave bowl with the water. Heat in the microwave and stir every 30 seconds until melted (it took me about 1 ½ minutes.
With my spoon I drizzled the caramel all over the popcorn.
While the caramel is still melted sprinkle on your cashews. The caramel will help the cashews stick to the popcorn.
Melt your chocolate chips in the microwave the same way you did the caramel bits then drizzle on the popcorn and let everything cool.
Once everything is cool and dry break into pieces and enjoy!
