Edible Gift: Popcorn Bark with Toffee and Dried Cherries

popcorn bark

Need a last-minute gift for your co-worker, dog-walker, or neighbor?  Something to bring to your holiday get-together?  This popcorn bark is quick, easy and tasty!  The combination of salty, sweet, and crunchy is a perfect snack.  It only takes a few minutes to put together, and it’s pretty enough to give away as a holiday treat.

I received this lightly salted popcorn from G.H. Cretors, who also provided me with the recipe.  I love popcorn for snacking, but I had never thought of putting it into a bark before.  This popcorn has such a clean flavor, and the salt is so light that it is not only great for eating plain, but also as an ingredient for other recipes like cookies, snack mixes, etc. Plus G.H. Cretors popcorn is gluten-free and GMO free!  Check out their Chicago Mix at Costco – because you’ll want the big bag.

Happy holidays!

Edible Gift: Popcorn Bark with Toffee and Dried Cherries

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. dark chocolate (I used Ghiradelli 60% cocoa chips)
  • 4 cups G.H. Cretors Organic Simply Salted Popcorn
  • 1/4 cup toffee bits (I used Hershey's brand)
  • 1/2 cup dried sour cherries

Instructions

Line a 9x13-inch baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the chocolate in heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of barely simmering water, stirring occasionally, until melted. Remove from heat. Reserve 1/2 cup melted chocolate, for drizzling. Pour remaining chocolate onto prepared baking sheet and spread evenly. Top evenly with popcorn, dried cherries and toffee bits. Drizzle reserved chocolate on top. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chocolate is set. Remove from pan and peel off the parchment paper. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
