Chocolate Orange Popcorn Crack Recipe

  • 1 (2.9 ounce) bag microwave kettle corn popcorn
  • 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 orange
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar, or to taste
  1. Remove plastic wrap from popcorn bag and unfold bag. Place in the microwave, directions-side up. Cook until bag is inflated and popcorn is popped, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Carefully open top of bag by pulling from the corners. Transfer popcorn to a bowl.
  2. Melt chocolate chips with vegetable oil in top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching, about 5 minutes.
  3. Zest orange using a fine grater.
  4. Juice 1/2 of the orange and stir into melted chocolate mixture; pour over popcorn and mix well. Stir orange zest into popcorn mixture.
  5. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spread popcorn mixture on top in 1 layer. Allow chocolate to cool and dry, about 30 minutes. Break into smaller pieces.
  6. Sift a generous amount of confectioners' sugar over popcorn.
