Easiest (and Most Addicting) Dessert Ever: Almond Bark Puffcorn

Love this? Share it!

Ah, the tastes of Christmas; gingerbread, peppermint, cinnamon, Cheeto puffcorn…Yes, you heard me correctly. (Read me correctly?) Almond Bark Puffcorn is the super easy recipe you never knew you needed in life!

I went to a potluck Christmas party recently and noticed what looked like a bowl of large popcorn on the table. And I thought I had taken the easy route with frozen cream puffs I had zapped in the microwave!

Within minutes people were crowded around the table, totally focused on this big bowl of what looked like giant popcorn. In fact, all night, people kept talking about it, passing it around, and taking handfuls as they left.

What gives? I finally snagged a piece and lo and behold, my world was changed. Not only was this stuff magical, it also happened to be the easiest (and most addicting) dessert ever: Almond Bark Puffcorn, also known sometimes as Christmas Crack or whatever silly name that means “so good you don’t want to quit eating it”!

Easiest dessert ever: Almond Bark Puffcorn

It requires just two ingredients, both easily found at your local grocery store, or in my case (where we have no grocery store in town), Dollar General!

While the recipe truly only requires two ingredients you could easily add in a few more! I’ve seen people use things like sprinkles, a drizzle of melted milk chocolate, or even crushed peppermint to make this recipe pop a bit!

I usually have this around Christmastime, but it would be perfect any other time of year too! I’m thinking red sprinkles for Valentine’s Day, maybe a few drops of green food coloring at St. Patrick’s Day, you get the idea!

However you decide to make it (the original recipe is pretty amazing on its own!), it’s the perfect dessert to take to the next holiday gathering, work party, or would even be an amazing gift all sacked up with a cute bow. (If you can resist eating it!)

It doesn’t get much easier than this!

Almond Bark Puffcorn Ingredients:

Instructions

1. Cut the block of Almond Bark in half and microwave to melt. (I started with 45 second increments, on high and kept stirring until it was melted.)

2. Pour the Puffcorn into a bowl and then pour the almond bark over it while stirring to get it evenly coated.

3. Spread the Puffcorn onto some wax paper to cool and set.

Hi there! I live in Canada and have never seen Almond Bark in our stores. Is it the same as Bakers White chocolate? As for the Puffcorn, I’m thinking it might be the same as Popcorn twists that we have. This looks amazing!!

This looks amazing! I'm going to try a batch, and if it's half as good as it looks, my family and friends can count on having some this Christmas.
