Crave-Worthy Almond Bark Popcorn Recipe

Happy Valentine's Day!  Here's Bella all dressed up for the occasion.


Onto the post topic - Almond Bark Popcorn.  This was introduced to us by some of our great friends, the Lawsons - shout out to you guys and your awesomeness - miss you.  The reason that I call it Crave-Worthy is that John described this to me as his "Puppy Chow."  If we have Puppy Chow in the house, I cannot stop myself from eating it.  Really, it is a problem.  And my stomach usually becomes sort of sick from it.  He feels that way about this treat that is super easy and fun.

I start by melting two or three squares of almond bark in the microwave at 30 second intervals until it is all melted.


Then pop the popcorn - I think any popcorn will work well.  For some reason, we have mass amounts of popcorn in our pantry, though we haven't bought it in a long time.  I opted to use the popcorn that expired in 2008 vs. the one that expired in 2004.

Popcorn Expire

Once the popcorn is popped, pour it into a bowl and pour the melted almond bark over it.


Then, spread it all out onto wax paper to let it dry.  It will be ready to enjoy in about 10 minutes.


You could easily make it festive by dying the almond bark the color of your choosing.  It is that wonderful blend of salty and sweet.  Crave-worthy.  Enjoy!

Love this- we like it with a drizzle of dark chocolate when it is spread out to set. (PS I love seeing all of your posts- and your beautiful little girls.)
