Kilner Rocky Road Popcorn Makes Movie Nights Magical

Kilner Rocky Road Popcorn Makes Movie Nights Magical

One of the best things about winter is being able to snuggle up on the sofa to watch festive movies.

Gather your loved ones together for a night worth staying in for.

Bring down a duvet, make the popcorn and put a movie on.

Rocky Road Popcorn

Ingredients

-50g salted butter

-70g popcorn kernels

-60g milk chocolate, melted

-65g mini marshmallows

-65g malted chocolate balls

Method

-Melt the butter in a large, deep pan that has a tight fitting lid. Add the popcorn kernels and stir to ensure each one is coated in butter.

-Turn the heat down to low and place the lid on the pan. Leave to cook until you hear popping. Do not take the lid off the pan. Leave until the popping sound begins to slow down.

-Holding the lid down, shake the pan gently to avoid the popcorn burning at the bottom of the pan.

-Remove from the heat and leave the lid on for a few minutes.

-Spread the popcorn out onto a baking tray and drizzle with melted chocolate. Leave to set.

-Next add the marshmallows and malted chocolate balls and combine.

-Fill into Kilner jars as gifts for friends and family or a cheeky snack.

Kilner Autumn Craft Inspiration

Image taken from Red Ted Art’s Blog

I love taking long walks in the countryside in autumn and kicking through all the beautiful fiery leaves. This is where I found the inspiration for the next autumn idea:

Kilner Autumn Leaves Lamp

Simply select a handful of beautiful autumn leaves, dry them out and decoupage your Kilner jar. Now drop in a tea light.

Remember to make a wish when you blow it out!
