Ingredients

  • ½ cup popcorn
  • ¼ cup oil
  • ¼ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups dark melting chocolate wafers
  • ½ cup red hots
  • ¾ cup thin pretzel sticks, broken in half
  • 1 package candy eyes, .88 ounce package
  • **There is a shortcut offered at the bottom of the recipe.**

Directions

Stir Crazy Directions:

Plug-in the Stir Crazy and pour in the oil and add popcorn. In a small bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Wait a minute or two to let the popcorn kernels covered in oil, then add the sugar and cinnamon evenly over the popcorn kernels. Place lid on the Stir Crazy and wait for all kernels to be popped. Once all the kernels are popped, un-plug and turn over stir crazy. Pour out onto 2 ft. x 2 ft. piece of wax paper and let it cool.

Stove Top Directions:

Pour the oil and corn kernels in a large pot over med-high heat (make sure you use one that has a tight fitting lid). Place the lid on top of the pot and mix it around a few times directly on burner.

In a small bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon together. Then add sugar directly on top of the corn kernels.

Replace lid and shake the pot in circular motion on the burner, until you hear the kernels start to pop.

Continue to shake in a circular motion while the kernels are popping until they are all completely popped.

Remove from heat and pour out onto 2 ft. x 2 ft. piece of wax paper and let it cool.

Melt dark chocolate in the microwave, I started with 1 minute then stir and heat for another 30-45. Stir again until completely melted, no chunks. Drizzle over popcorn, then top with red hots and pretzels; then mix together using two large spoons and slightly turning the popcorn, pretzels and red hots over one another, until all of the mix is mostly covered.

Once chocolate has cooled and hardened, add in eyeballs and serve.

Shortcut

Use pre-popped popcorn, 16 cups. Spread out the popcorn on wax paper. Use the same amounts of chocolate, cinnamon, red hots, and pretzel sticks as mentioned above.
