Kirsten's Popped Corn Crack for #FoodieExtravaganza

When Cam of Culinary Adventures with Camilla volunteered to host Foodie Extravaganza this month, she chose to honor National Popcorn Day which is celebrated on January 19th.  Many of us are coming together today and sharing our popcorn recipes so that our readers are prepared for the national celebration.

We eat a lot of popcorn around here.  Frank is the popcorn king.  He uses a whirly pop pan and Orville Redenbacher corn.  I like mine just salted. He likes his buttered and salted.  A couple of months ago I shared this Nutty Caramel Popcorn with you and a couple of years ago I shared this Gold and Silver Popcorn.

When Cam set up this challenge she invited us to make our popcorn either sweet or savory.  I am anxious to see if anyone made a savory popcorn.  I have eaten spicy popcorn. Would that be considered savory?  I thought about trying to figure out or find a savory recipe but the only thing my mind would picture when I thought of popcorn was this lovely mixture to which my friend Kirsten introduced me.

I have no idea what Kirsten calls this but I call it Kirsten's Popcorn Crack because it is so highly addictive.  I texted her to ask for directions. She said she would bring me the popcorn that she uses and the only other things I needed were white chocolate chips, mini m&m's and a touch of oil.

I must include a PSA right here, right now.....There is absolutely no nutritional value in this recipe.  It is made completely from processed foods.  It is highly addictive and author accepts no responsibility for any missed nutritional dietary needs due to the fact that the maker of this recipe and their family/friends skip all meals to eat this dish.

Now that the public service announcement is out of the way, let me just say this is the perfect recipe......Easy, Peasy and Delicious.  Throw your popcorn in a large bowl.  Melt the white chocolate with a little oil in a large measuring cup until smooth and pour over the popcorn, tossing the bowl to distribute it evenly over the popcorn.  Sprinkle in the M&M's, tossing to distribute, and you are done. If you are having guests you can put it in a fancy bowl otherwise throw in a movie, place the mixing bowl on the floor in the center of you all and dig in!!

Let's see more Popcorn Creations

Foodie Extravaganza is where we celebrate obscure food holidays or cook and bake together with the same ingredient or theme each month. This month we celebrate National Popcorn Day (which is January 19th) by serving up popcorn as creatively as we can.

Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla is hosting and here's the challenge she shared with the crew...

"National Popcorn Day is celebrated annually January 19th. It can be sweet, savory, buttered, plain, and even shaped into balls. So, bring your most fun, creative – or just your favorite – twist to eating popcorn."

Posting day for #FoodieExtravaganza is always the first Wednesday of each month.

POP on Over to These Posts...


  1. I buy a lot of popcorn here too but I eat very little. I grew up with popcorn and milk as our Saturday night meal all of my childhood. And I loved it. I still like popcorn with a tall glass of ice cold milk. This recipe, however, looks delicious! I can see why it would be called crack!!

  2. I can see that this would be highly addictive!

  3. Haha... I understand the disclaimer! These kind of dishes go so well with the kids, especially since they are unhealthy!

  4. I like the disclaimer, probably necessary!

  5. Corn puffs are my favorite guilty summer snack, this year I'm going to have to enjoy it with chocolate!

  6. So nice of your friend to share her recipe. I've never had corn puffs like this, but I do love popcorn.

    1. I didn't realize that they were corn puffs until she brought them over. Shows how much attention I was paying as I shoveled them in LOL

  7. You have a very good friend who so willingly shared her recipe and also bought the corn for you ... lucky girl to have such a friend... these look so tempting and colorful.
