Here are some photos of the snacks at the party (made by Maz!) (please excuse the camera taking skills in this post!):
I also attempted a snack of my own - popcorn chocolate brains - as named by Maz! This was inspired by this recipe on Sorted Food, a youtube food channel that makes most recipes seem like they'll take 2 minutes and be super easy! (But in reality they don't!) Obviously Halloween has been and gone, however these are still a fun, yummy snack to create for a themed party or just a chilled out night watching a movie!
So I used the above recipe, however, I did not put them in the fridge when I had finished making them. They tasted ok but not as crisp as they would have done if they had been in the fridge.
This recipe will make a generous amount of fudgey popcorn clusters!
Microwaveable sweet popcorn/raw popping corn, 150g
Shot of oil
1 tin of condensed milk, 397g
Dark chocolate chips, 400g - around 4 bags
Knob of butter, 25g
Icing sugar, 100g
For decoration (optional) -
Orange sugar strands
Handful of white chocolate chips
Dusting of icing sugar
Pinch of all spice
Orange chocolate buttons, 100g (1 bag) - I bought these on a whim and they taste like Terry's chocolate orange and are amazing. I recommend buying just to have a naughty snack! I just decorated the plate with these which gave a Halloween esque feel!
Empty the condensed milk into a saucepan with the chocolate drops and butter.
Either heat the oil up in another pan (make sure you have a lid) and add the popcorn. Sand stir the popcorn kernels so they are all coated in the oil and then put on the lid and continue to heat, shaking occasionally, once the corn starts popping, keep shaking the pan so none of it stays in the same place and burns. Or, alternatively, microwave approximately two bags of sweet popcorn - it should have more or less the same effect!
Beat the icing sugar into the fudge mixture until smooth.
Use as much or as little of the fudge and popcorn as desired, and mix the two together to create a concoct similar to the one below!
