This recipe is super simple, but it is time consuming and has lots of steps. It is well worth the effort.

Begin by melting 40 ounces of the white chocolate Candy Melts in a double boiler. If you don’t have an “official” double boiler you can create one quite easily. You can also put about an inch of water in a pot and place a glass bowl on top of the pot. As long as the bowl doesn’t touch the water, this can also be considered your double boiler. Stir the white chocolate Candy Melts occasionally until fully melted.

Cover your bowls with aluminum foil.

While the chocolate is melting, pop the popcorn. Remove any uncooked kernels of corn and…

When the chocolate has completely melted…

use a large spoon to fold the chocolate into the popcorn until all the popcorn is covered.

Begin melting the other 16 ounces of white chocolate Candy Melts in the double boiler.

Pour enough popcorn in the aluminum foil covered bowl to fill it half way. With gloved hands, press the popcorn onto all sides of the bowl as if you were making a crust for a pie. Press popcorn firmly, but do not MASH it to create a broken mess of popcorn.

After the bowl is completely covered and the 6 ounces (if you’re also making the Chocolate Candy Covered Popcorn to go in the bowl melt 16 ounces) of white chocolate Candy Melts are completely melted, fill in the gaps between the popcorn…

and add a layer of chocolate on the popcorn that creates the rim of the popcorn bowl. I used my gloved fingers, but you could easily use a frosting tube or pastry brush. Take your time with this step because you don’t want the popcorn bowl to be weakly connected at any point.

Refrigerate completed bowl for a minimum of one hour. When ready to use the bowl, using the aluminum foil, pull the “popcorn bowl” out of the “bowl” and carefully peel off the aluminum foil.

Pop another bag of popcorn and remove all the uncooked kernels. You’ll have quite a bit of white chocolate left from making the bowl, so mix that chocolate with the popcorn the same way as you mixed it for the popcorn bowl. While the popcorn mixture is still warm, add miniature or bite size candy such as Snickers, Milky Way, Twix, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Caramels, Whoppers, Nestle Crunch, Baby Ruth…Any candy that you enjoy! You can also add nuts like peanuts, pecans and walnuts. Spread this mixture on an aluminum foil lined baking sheet.

Melt 16 ounces melted dark chocolate Candy Melts. Mix about 6 ounces into the white chocolate popcorn mixture. With a spoon or piping bag, drizzle the remaining 10 ounces of melted chocolate candy melts over the top of the warm popcorn mixture.

Refrigerate cookie sheet for a minimum of one hour. When ready to fill the popcorn bowl with Chocolate Candy Covered Popcorn, peel off the aluminum foil from the back of the Chocolate Candy Covered Popcorn mixture. With gloved hands, break into medium size pieces.

Edible Chocolate Covered Popcorn Bowl

Ingredients:

2 large bowls lined with aluminum foil
1 pair gloves (I used them because I’m allergic to corn, but they make the job not as messy too)

40 ounces melted white chocolate Candy Melts
6 ounces melted white chocolate Candy Melts
