Biscoff Popcorn with Toffee Bits

Do you call them Toffee Bits or Toffee Chips?

I guess technically they are Toffee Chips, but for some reason every time I write it out or say it out loud it comes out as Toffee Bits, and I don't think about it being wrong.

But I'm thinking about it now and I'm all self conscious about how I say it.

Please don't judge me for my poor choices in food names.

If you're going to judge me, do it for the taste of this delicious snackeroo!

I usually don't need a lot of fancy ingredients on my popcorn. Give me butter and salt and I'm good as golden, but this time Biscoff was calling out to me.

It was whispering from the depths of the pantry, serenading me with the soft song of desire.

(I feel like I am serenading you now)

So there I was one night. Needing a fix of popcorn. Starting to go pale and shaky from the long lapse between hits (do I sound like a junky yet?), and I was making my go-to popcorn.

Extra butter and salt.

And I popped waaaaaaaaaay too much popcorn. To the point that a 5qt bowl couldn't hold it all.

I tend to make enough food to feed an army. Just in case an army just happens to show up on my door step at any given moment, I will be able to feed them.

I poured the 5 quarts of freshly popped kernels in the 5 qt bowl, and there the leftover quart or so of popcorn was sitting, all lonely and unused in the pot.

I couldn't leave them that way, and I certainly couldn't let any popcorn go to waste.

That's when I heard the sweet serenade of the Biscoff whispering at me.

I couldn't stop at Biscoff either. Because Biscoff and Toffee Bits (chips?) go so well together, and I really just cant get over this sweet and somewhat salty popcorn mix!

So in all honesty, I'm not exactly sure how much popcorn this was, because it was the leftover (yet just as tasty) popcorn, but if the Biscoff doesn't seem to be enough, just add a little bit more :)

You can also use either the (unflavored) microwave popcorn or the raw kernels like I did. Ill give directions for the raw kernels that I used, but feel free to do whatever you would like :)

Biscoff Popcorn with Toffee Bits | Printable Recipe
makes roughly 1 quart popcorn

ingredients:
  • 1/8 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup unpopped corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup Biscoff spread (more if needed)
  • 1/3 cup Toffee Bits
directions:
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Place 1 kernel in the pot with the oil. When the kernel pops, add the remaining 1/4 cup unpopped kernels.
  2. Cover the pot with a lid, and shake often, moving the kernels around, until there the kernels all seem popped. There should be roughly 20 seconds or more of silence between each pop.
  3. Remove from heat and pour the popcorn into a bowl.
  4. Place the Biscoff spread in a microwave safe bowl and microwave it for 30 seconds.
  5. Pour over the popcorn, stirring around to evenly cover. Stir in the toffee bits, and enjoy!

    1. I was able to find them at one of my local grocery stores in BC, but you can also order them off of Amazon, and probably other food sites like that too. I didnt expect to find them here in BC so I was excited that I did :) Here is an amazon link to get them if you like :) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002BUFXQ8

  6. Okay. So I've started making homemade popcorn and LOVE this idea. But a quart of popcorn? I'd devour that in minutes. And then you add the Biscoff and toffee. This stuff. I just can't handle it! I want to have a party or something so I can make this and not worry about gobbling it down in 2 1/2 minutes. :)
