RECIPE : Rocky Road Popcorn Pops


I must have known subconsciously that everything was leading to National Popcorn Day today! First I met the Popcorn PR girls last week, then I blogged about Boots popcorn earlier this week. I invented these Rocky Road Popcorn Pops as a thank you to the aforementioned ladies after a great event, so thought I would share them with you. They are so easy to make, completely delicious and a fantastically low 2pp/approx.80kcal each!

You Will Need : (Per Popcorn Pop)

4g popcorn 
(I used the Boots Popcorn as it's very low in pp's. Click HERE for link. I mixed maple and salted together).
If you use a different variety of popcorn, check the pp/kcal as they vary enormously.
2 Sugar Free Marshmallows
(Sainsburys sell them)
4g Plain Chocolate
1/4 teaspoon Sugar Sprinkles


Put the popcorn and marshmallows in a small ramekin and microwave for 20 seconds until the marshmallows puff up. (They go huge!)


As soon as it comes out of the microwave, scoop out the mixture, gently pressing the popcorn into the molten marshmallow.


Insert a lollipop stick and compress the popcorn pop onto it until secure.
(These are actually rigid paper straws but I love the 'popcorn' theme to the colours).


Stick remaining popcorn onto any exposed areas of marshmallow, ensuring a lovely round shape.


Make as many as you require.


Drizzle the top with melted chocolate and add a few sprinkles. Allow to set.


If they are for gifts, wrap each one in a cellophane bag and tie with string.



I used some raffia saved from a bouquet of flowers. Add personalised tags.
These are my business cards with small holes punched in.
(I've written the propoint value on the back).
