Black and White Popcorn (G V)

While in college, I worked in a dormitory snack bar. Sometimes the place was so busy we student workers hardly had time to think.  Other times, however,  things were slow and we college students had too much time on our hands. This is when we would come up with creative food concoctions or experiments to fill the void.

 A great flavor combination I came up with was to drizzled fresh popcorn with hot fudge sauce. Wow, was it ever wonderful!

I still love the chocolate popcorn combination from those college days and have come up with a very easy way to satisfy my sweet tooth craving - Black and White Popcorn.


 Black and White Popcorn





1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips (divided)
2-3 squares almond bark (divided)
4 tsp shortening
6 C popped popcorn

Pop corn in a microwave and spread it evenly in two large baking pans - one layer each.
Melt 1/4 C chocolate chips with 1 tsp shortening over low heat. Combine. (do not burn chocolate).
Dip the tines of a fork into the chocolate mixture and drizzle evenly over popcorn.

Melt half the almond bark and 1 tsp shortening over low heat. Combine. (do not burn almond bark).
Dip the tines of a fork into the almond bark mixture and drizzle evenly over popcorn.

Allow chocolate and bark mixtures to harden. Gently toss coated popcorn to expose uncoated side.

Repeat melting procedure with the remaining  chocolate, bark and shortening and drizzle as above.
Allow chocolate and bark to harden.

Put coated popcorn in a container with an air-tight lid. Refrigerate. Enjoy!
