You know those foods that taste so good that you just can’t stop eating them even though they are super rich and they kind of make you feel sick? This is one of those. I was literally moaning in pain as I continued to jam this popcorn into my face. It is so good. It tastes like hot chocolate and popcorn together. It’s salty. It’s sweet. It’s chocolate. It’s really easy to make. It’s much harder to make yourself stop eating. I recommend making this for a party or making a much smaller batch if you plan to split it with a friend on the couch.
Ok, full disclosure… I made a poor choice of cocktail pairing. I had Kahlua and coke with it. Kahlua and coke is good, by the way. It tastes like chocolate coke. What it also is is very rich and sickly sweet. Kinda like the popcorn. Perhaps something more bitter or savory like a stout would be in order. Or, again, learn self-control. …. beer it is.
Enjoy in moderation, as they say.
