In a recent TikTok, Chef Giada is giving us a new popcorn recipe she called “Candy Popcorn,” a sweet popcorn recipe with her Simply7 Parmesan Popcorn. At first, it may seem a little odd but the final product looks like the sweet and salty snack of our dreams. De Laurentiis starts by laying out the popcorn on a baking sheet, then drizzles melted milk chocolate and white chocolate all over the cheesy popcorn. She tops it all off with marshmallows and M&M’s to make sure we hit all those sweet tooth cravings. The final product is somewhat similar to another popcorn recipe the chef has blessed us with that was originally a solution to leftover Halloween treats.
Commenters raved over the brilliant idea. One wrote, “I wish I could reach through the screen & eat this.” Another agreed this is the way to go when jazzing up regular old popcorn giving the alternative to pretzels instead of marshmallows on top. We know this may not be the healthy popcorn it started out as, but it sure looks like it would make our mouths happy. We can only imagine how many people will be trying this at their next movie night.
