I am taking a little break to spend time with my family + brand new (and oh so delicious) baby girl. For the meantime I have prepared a few recipes ahead of time. Do you usually get candy or popcorn at the movies (or both)? With this popcorn munch mix you don't have to choose one or the other.
Let's continue this summer's popcorn munching with a concoction that tastes like a Skor (or Heathor European Daim) bar: Toffee Butterscotch Popcorn Munch
This fantastic treat starts with freshly popped homemade popcorn. Check out my favorite way to make it HERE.
The popped golden kernels are mixed with toffee bits, coated with rich milk chocolate and drizzled with the most amazing butterscotch topping. Could there be any better combination? This butterscotch popcorn is perfect for a little date night movie snack, an afternoon treat or just a great after dinner dessert!
Personally, I also think this would make a really fun treat for events, especially if you put the popcorn in little cupcake bowls like I did! It looks cute, each person gets a small helping and it looks picturesque! From bridal and baby showers to graduation parties, it can be a great addition to an event!
I adapted the drizzle from last year's Mocha Popcorn Munch. This time I used butterscotch chips to emulate the buttery flavor in toffee candy bars. This is also what’s so fun about popcorn! You can dress it up and make it taste good in so many ways!
Technically you could just melt the butterscotch chips (with a little coconut or other vegetable oil) for the topping, but if you have it on hand I highly recommend adding a couple tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk. It’s just betterthat way, if you know what I mean!
The condensed milk prevents the butterscotch from setting up too firm. As a result, the topping stays slightly chewy (even if the popcorn munch is kept refrigerated) posing a wonderful contrast to the crunchy popcorn and toffee. As I said, I think it just tastes better this way.
I won't lie and will give you a fair warning: this stuff is addicting!! Just like all the other popcorn munch recipes on here. So, before you make it, brace yourself and perhaps eat a meal before, so you’re not hungry and in the snacking mood!
They are sooo hard to photograph. It's impossible not to snack on some while it's out. Even when I am not hungry my hands - pretty much involuntarily - keep stuffing my mouth.
The only solution I have for a lack of portion and self-control: make only half a batch and if you can't do that then immediately share this Toffee Butterscotch Popcorn Munch with someone else in your household!
I also love this butterscotch popcorn recipe not just because it tastes good but because itlooks pretty too! I just love the different colors of the drizzled butterscotch and toffee!
If you tried this popcorn, please let me know what you think! I am all ears and eyes!

How long does this keep? It looks like it'd be great for sending in Christmas packages, but it would have to keep long enough to ship.
Usually plain popcorn starts going stale after 2 days. This version is a little different because of the chocolate coating, which will help it keep fresh longer. Just be sure not to use any butter when making the popcorn and store it as airtight as possible. Using a ziplock and a straw to draw out as much air as you can.
