R is for Recipe: Chocolate Drizzled Caramel Puff Corn
I am so excited to share this amazing treat with you all! This chocolate drizzled caramel puff corn is so delicious that it is absolutely addictive. My dear aunt sent me the recipe for the caramel puff corn earlier this spring. She and her friends in Florida have been making this recipe and are totally hooked on it. Around the same time my husband brought home a bag of zebra caramel corn (drizzled with white and dark chocolate) from Costco that we couldn’t stay out of. I was inspired to combine the two treats and so was born this recipe. You are going to love it! Here we go:
I was not familiar with puff corn before receiving this recipe. It was easy to find in the snack/chip aisle of my local grocery store and was quite inexpensive as well. I used butter flavored puff corn and it made for the perfect balance between sweet and salty.
Here is what it looked like in the roaster after baking for 45 minutes.
And here is a peek at what it looked like just after the chocolate was drizzled over it. It took a few hours for the chocolate to really set up. I chuckled as I read to store it in an air tight container. We ate so much while the chocolate was drying that I wasn’t sure there was going to be any left to put in a container!
So, what do you think? Are you going to try it? I promise you won’t regret it. This chocolate drizzled caramel puff corn is so light and airy yet wonderfully sweet and salty. It would be a great treat to put out at a party or to put in bags or boxes for party favors or neighbor gifts at the holidays. I know I will be using this recipe a lot in the future. Let me know how it turns out for you. I think I might need to go grab another handful right now! Yum!
