Pop Popcorn Pop

Now try to say Pop Popcorn Pop 3 times in a row very fast! Not very difficult, is it? You know what else is not difficult? Eating 3 of these Pop Popcorn Pops in a row very fast!

This was another Probocado Challenge from Blogolosas. This time the challenge was to create something using leftovers as a base, or as they put it: Recycling cooking. And just for fun we also had to present it on a stick.

So I had leftover popcorn. What kind of a person has leftover popcorn, you ask! It's a shame I now! But here's what happened, I had some friends over a few days ago and I made a big bowl of popcorn. And this is were I went wrong, I also offered them a big platter of homemade cookies. I guess the cookies were more popular and the popcorn were left almost untouched. So the next day I've made a powder out of the popcorn and made these popcorn truffles with it. And now I can't wait to have leftover popcorn again! They were delicious! If you're a sweet & salty lover, you'll like these for sure.

POP POPCORN POP
  • 1 cup popcorn (no butter)
  • 170 gr (6oz) white chocolate
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Cocoa powder
Put the popcorn in the food processor and process until you have a powder. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or the microwave. Heat the cream until it almost start to boil. Mix the chocolate with the cream and mix in the salt and butter. Mix until the butter is melted. Add the powdered popcorn and take to the fridge for a couple of hours. Make little balls with the mixture and pass in the cocoa powder. If you want put on a stick and attach a popcorn with a drop of melted chocolate.

PIRULITO DE PALOMITAS
  • 1 taza de palomitas (sin mantequilla)
  • 170 gr de chocolate blanco
  • 1/4 de taza natas
  • 1 cucharilla de mantequilla
  • 1/4 cucharilla de sal
  • Cacao en polvo

Hacer un polvo con las palomitas. Derretir el chocolate en banho-maria o en el microondas. Calentar la nata hasta que casi empieze a herbir y añadir al chocolate. Mezclar la mantequilla y la sal y remover hasta que se derrieta la mantequilla. Juntar el polvo de palomitas y llevar a la nevera un par de horas. Hacer bolitas con la mezcla y pasarlas por cacao en polvo. Poner en un palito y decorar con una palomita pegada con una gota de chocolate derretido.

Don't you feel like popping some popcorn and then pop some pop popcorn pops into your mouth?

Now how creative is that!? Actually, I always have leftover popcorn, but I never thought to incorporate it into a dessert! As I always say, you can't go wrong it you add chocolate to it!:)

cookemila said...

Te han quedado fantásticos, me encanta la pinta que tienen. No sé decirte por qué, porque parecen flores extraterrestres o algo así pero molan cantidad, son una pasada y originales a más no poder.

Muchísimas gracias por participar en esta edición. (Por cierto ¿crees que si hiciéramos la versión de la invitación en inglés se apuntaría alguien más?)

Un pop-kiss (espero no haber dicho ninguna barbaridad).

Truly unique - I've never seen a recipe that grinds up popcorn before and, to be honest, I've seen a lot of recipes!

Zen Chef said...

Too busy pop popping pop popcorn while reading your pop popcorn pop post. Possibly i need to stop pop popping pop popcorn or i'm gonna end up with too much popped corn. I may have to post popped popcorn pop too!

apparentlyjessy said...

What a delightful and inventive way of using up popcorn! I just just stumbled across your blog, and I think it is pretty special, I definitely like the star cake tutorial :)

Parker said...

Very cute indeed!

Katrina said...

I think I say this everytime you post something--genius! Amazing! Your talent never ceases to amaze me. I would make you be like my best friend in the whole world if we didn't live half a world away!
And for the record, I would have totally gone for the cookies over popcorn myself--but I'll bet I didn't even have to tell you that!
Sorry it took me three days to get here!
:)

suesse-mahlzeit said...

I am all about salty/sweet - so I will definitely be trying these one day!

jen said...

Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella said...

Cool idea Rita. Popcorn pops sound delicious! :D

mavele said...

Rita! que gaciosos quedaron, seguro a mis sobrinas les encanta. Aunque no creo conseguir polvo de palomitas (aqui les decimos cotufas), porque como bien lo dices tu, es dificil que sobren palomitas en casa, pero si así fuera seguro me la copio ;)

un abrazo!

Katrina said...

Ha, love Zen's tongue twister!

Kevin said...

What a creative way to use popcorn! They sound good!

The Blonde Duck said...

Those are so cute!

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

You never fail to amaze me with your clever ideas. These look fun and tasty.

Yeah, I do find leftover popcorn to be an odd concept!

FFichiban said...

OH yuummmmmm!!!! I must go out to buy some popcorn! Oh I can imagine the sweet and salty combination already mmmmmm but the texture I must try to find out! Thhxxx XD

Emily said...

Wow! You are too smart. What a cute idea!

Colloquial Cook said...

You're a genius Rita! Such pretty truffles. It reminds me that I haven't had pop corn in a long time. I'll have to do something about it soon. And hide half for leftovers :-)

OLGUIS said...

que buen snack y una gran idea.
Que tipo de nata usas
Heavy Cream,Table Cream or Whipped Cream?

olga.

Bren@ Flanboyant Eats said...

how smart is this!? :) too cute.

CookiePie said...

YUM! Maybe for this I could conjure up enough willpower to not scarf down all the popcorn in the bowl...

Lore said...

How imaginative is that! Way to go Rita!!!

Jeanine said...

No way! Powdered popcorn...who would have thought... I bet these taste fantastic, I know they look great. If you'd offer these instead of popcorn, they'd be gone! :)

caosnacozinha said...

I think I'm gonna try this with a bag of fortune cookies that I brought from San Francisco and that are a little bit soft for my taste. Love these ideas! :)

Honeybun said...

Amazing! Where do you get those ideas?? This looks yummy!
Would have never thought of doing something like that. And it looks good too! Well done! ;-)
I'm not a regular pop corn maker, but I might try, just so I have 'leftovers'... ;-)

Imperfection said...

This looks so amazing! :) I'm thinking about making these for my friends for Valentine's Day. About how many does your recipe make for? :D

Clumbsy Cookie said...

I wish I could remember... But by the amount of ingredients I would say about a dozen. Hope it works for you!
