DIY Popcorn Bar

Doubling as an activity and, if you give large enough containers, it can also be a favor, our Popcorn Bar was the hit of our party we had a few weeks ago.

1. Put popped popcorn aside, melt chocolate and caramel on the stove according to directions.

2. Lay popcorn out on the wax paper and drizzle the chocolate and caramel on top.  Let dry.

3. While the popcorn is hardening, set out toppings.  Put each topping in a little bowl with a spoon and set out on the Popcorn Bar.

4.  Put the popcorn in a large bowl, drizzle a little more chocolate and caramel on top and set out on the popcorn bar.

5. Set out bags or cones and let your guests make their own popcorn creations!
