1bag of PuffcornI use Chester's Popcorn Puffs aka Puffcorn
1bag Wilton's white candy melts or white chocolate or almond bark
Redwhite and blue decorations, sprinkles, jimmies
Cover a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper. I use two baking sheets for one bag of corn as to not to crowd the corn on the baking sheet.
Melt the white candy or chocolate in the microwave. Sacrebleu - melting chocolate in the microwave. You bet! For this recipe it works just fine.
Drizzle melted white candy over the puffcorn. I use a wooden spoon and gently drip the melted chocolate by moving the spoon back and forth and letting the chocolate "gently" fly off the spoon. You aren't trying to cover the puffcorn, just add enough chocolate to enhance the puffcorn.
Bring out the decorations! I used patriotic red white and blue stars for the summer version of this recipe. Gently sprinkle and visually judge what looks aesthetically pleasing to you.
Very important! Put the trays into the refrigerator to set the chocolate on the patriotic puffcorn.
It only takes about 10 minutes.
Remove trays from refrigerator and break apart the puffcorn into snackable sizes.
Store puffcorn in a tightly closed container until serving.
Humidity Tip: If you happen to live in an area such as I do that is prone to high humidity whether it be the norm or summer storms passing through Puffcorn or Puffed Corn is not the most friendly if left uncovered.
