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

Love this? Share it!

Almond Bark Puffcorn is the two ingredient dessert everyone will adore. Make it once and you’ll be back for more! (That rhyme was a complete accident but we’ll leave it.) :)

Ah, the tastes of Christmas; gingerbread, peppermint, cinnamon, Cheeto puffcorn…Yes, you read that correctly. Almond Bark Puffcorn is the super easy recipe you never knew you needed in life!Almond Bark Puffcorn Recipe

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 long 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. Customize to your liking, my friend.

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 (a perfect addition on a Christmas charcuterie board), work party, or would even be an amazing gift all sacked up with a cute bow. (If you can resist eating it!)

Oh, and what’s better than two ingredients? Maybe just three ridiculously easy steps to follow. 

It doesn’t get much easier than this!

Are you only using half a block of almond bark or cutting it half so it melts easier, but using all of it?

I made it and let it sit on my kitchen counter for a few hours and it became chewy not crunchy. Should it be sealed in bags as soon as cool? Have you had that problem? I do not plan on serving immediately.

I have never seen Cheeto Puffcorn in my area. I wonder if it is regional

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.
