Fun with Jars Friday is back!
With a vengeance!
Of the sweet variety!
Is there any other kind!?So I made this. Then realized it was Friday. So I quickly threw it in a jar. Cuz I am nothing if not uber prepared and organized. And we’re off. To this week’s Fun with Jars Friday!
You are not seeing things!
Do not adjust your screens!
I got a little girls gone wild in the kitchen!
But in a good girl kind of way!
Cuz that’s how I roll!
So I have been on a popcorn craze the last couple of days. I have about 3 more recipes for you over the next week using popcorn. I tend to get a bit ocd about stuff.
But first there is this one.
Cuz it rocks,
The inspiration for this one started with a popcorn I was whipping up that went awry. I have tweaked it and it will go up on the blog soon. In the process I got mad and decided to google that popcorn. I found what I was doing wrong and then followed a link to another popcorn that blew my mind. Cookies and Cups did a Red Velvet Version that is absolutely amazing. So then I thought okay I can do that one. But then I thought well she just did that one so that’s not cool, maybe I can adapt it a bit. So this is what I came up with. I just happened to have some chocolate cake lying around. And let’s just say you know you’re a foodie when you can say things like “I just happened to have some chocolate cake lying around”. So I tweaked the ingredients a wee bit and this is the result.
- 4 cups popped popcorn
- 1 and ½ cups crushed cooked chocolate cake
- 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate squares
- Pop your popcorn and place it in a bowl that has some extra room in it.
- Now in a double boiler, melt your chocolate.
- Pour the chocolate over the popcorn and then toss it with a spoon to coat it really well.
- Now sprinkle the chocolate cake crumbs over top and stir again.
- Now pour it out onto a cookie sheet and separate it as best you can.
- Let it dry out.
Thank you to Shelly from Cookies and Cups for the inspiration. I only changed out the type of cake and the type of chocolate. I think the possibilities for this one would be endless. So go crazy girls. But in a good girl way. Cuz that’s how we roll up here in the asylum!
Stay tuned for another popcorn recipe coming your way soon. I have a new obsession. Goodness help me, I need to pull out the stretchy pants this week. This is not going to end well.
Oh and a little bit of blog happenings. The Wild Rice Pizza I made caught the attention of Jennifer who cooks for SheKnows. She has made my recipe and has given me a shout out on the site. I was pretty stoked. Feel free to stop by there and say hello. You can find Jennifer’s version on the SheKnows site.
