Spicy Chocolate Popcorn is light, airy, and crunchy. Drizzled with sweet melted chocolate with a spicy kick from cayenne pepper and a sprinkling of sea salt. Addicting snack!
I originally posted this recipe almost two years ago when I was addicted to Joanne Fluke‘s baking murder mysteries and baked Peanut Butter Molasses Cookies based on a recipe from her book. I finished with the whole series and now I am eagerly waiting for the next instalment if the adventures of the main character. Back when I originally posted the recipe for Spicy Chocolate Popcorn I was browsing internet and I stumbled upon Joanne’s Facebook page where there was a post about a TV movie created based on this series.
I love watching movies based on books. I have to say, that at least half of the time movies are less interesting and quite disappointing than the books, but I keep watching and hoping for something good. After a quick search it turned out that this TV movie is easily available on YouTube and I decided that there’s no better time to watch it than right now. I started by looking at a few trailers and then I realized that I must (must!!!!) have some kind of sweet snack while watching this movie. I mean, the main character is a baker, she brings cookies everywhere she goes, the trailer showed her baking delicious desserts. Not having a snack while watching this would be like going to a buffet restaurant hungry and not eating there.
I know, it would be more fitting to have made something from Joanne’s recipes, but I did not feel like making cookies. I needed something sweet, quick and long lasting and I knew just the thing! I made this a few months ago for a Chocolate Dinner I hosted and it was spectacular – Spicy Chocolate Popcorn!
Light and airy, crunchy popcorn, drizzled with sweet melted chocolate with a spicy kick from cayenne pepper and a sprinkling of sea salt. How satisfying is that? Well, very satisfying (for those people who love sweet and salty together, of course)!
