My friend brought me over some of that yummy Zebra Popcorn that Sam's club carries every once in a while and we were hooked...
it's ridiculously expensive though and justifying it's superb yumminess for a dent in my wallet doesn't go over very well for me...
so I decided to make my own...
and my friend told me that Studio 5 did a segment on it so I googled it and found a recipe...
and then I changed it a little bit...
cuz it's my thing to always change recipes...
So here goes!
Zebra Popcorn (Caramel corn with Dark and White Chocolate drizzles)
12 cups popped popcorn (2 1/2 bags of the microwave stuff)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Karo syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
6-8 ounces dark chocolate
6-8 ounces white chocolate
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Spray 2 cookies sheets with pam and set aside.
Melt butter in microwave safe bowl for 1 minute. Add brown sugar and karo and mix. Microwave in 1 minute intervals until boiling, stirring frequently. Without stirring, continue to cook for 3 minutes. Stir in vanilla and baking soda. Pour over popped corn and mix well to thoroughly coat the popcorn with caramel. Spread out on the cookie sheets. Bake both pans for 7 minutes, stir and rotate pans. Repeat. Cool in pans. Melt the chocolate separately and drizzle over cooled popcorn. When cooled break into pieces and enjoy!
I used those melting candy chips that you can buy at wal-mart in the party section where the wedding cake baking stuff is...and I just used regular chocolate because they didn't have dark. It still taste really good. Also, after the chocolate has melted I put it in a ziplock bag to make the drizzling easier. I don't even want to know how many calories are in this...it is sooooo good!
