happy halloween!
a chocolaty-drizzled popcorn treat

Why should the kids have all the fun?!  This is what we'll be munching on as we hand out treats this week. I'll have about a cup, and then a certain farmer will lock himself in a closet with the rest.  It's addictive, friends!

a sweet, maybe salty, maybe spicy, nutty fruity chocolaty-drizzled popcorn treat

Pop popcorn according to package directions.  Try kettle corn, really is perfect for this.  Strew on silpat (or cooking spray) lined baking sheet.  Let it mingle with whatever treats your heart desires-- we used almonds, pistachios, and dried mixed fruits.  Season with your favorites-- we used a little cayenne on one batch, a little chat masala, a popular indian snack spice mixture, so goooood, on another, and simply a little sea salt on a third batch.

Melt chocolate candy coating according to package directions.  I found mine to be thicker than would easily drizzle (glop!) so I transferred it to a handy-dandy squeeze bottle, and went to town.  Drizzle chocolate over the top, as shown.  Pop the tray into the fridge for a few minutes (really. It only takes a few minutes to harden.)

We talk a mean game, but we'll break down and share it with the neighborhood kids.  We gently break off pieces to share in baking treat bags, and a few in cupcake liners for the kids who hang around to play with the animals a bit. 

'Cause really, if we don't share, we'll eat the whole batch (or 2 or 3) for dinner.  

And maybe breakfast the next day. 


  1. It's seriously addictive...crunchy and sweet and salty and spicy and.....everything! lol

  3. lol.....there's not much wrong with all that, huh...lol. I had to pack it off with my husband to keep from eating it allllll.

  4. Looks like it's a home run snack that hits all the bases. Just what a snack should be. Happy Halloween out there on the farm.
