Ingredients

ingredients for a sweet and salty popcorn mix

Instructions

Spread the popped popcorn out onto a clean baking sheet and drizzle the melted chocolate over it. (optional) Sprinkle the top with flaked sea salt. Let the chocolate harden.

Once the chocolate has harden, carefully break the popcorn pieces apart and place into a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well.

And you’re done! Feel free to transfer the mix into a prettier (or less breakable) bowl. Enjoy!

How To Store

If there are left over’s after finishing that final episode of The Mandolorian (is it just me or is “The Child” literally the cutest Star Wars character ever?), you can just pour what’s left of the mix into a sealable bag and keep on the counter at room temperature for a few days. The popcorn will probably begin to go stale after about day 3 so, keep this in mind!
