Speculoos Twix Popcorn

Recipe by: Something Swanky
Yield: 6-8
  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 2 cups white melting candy discs (like Wiltons)
  • 3 Tbsp. Speculoos spread
  • 1 cup chopped Twix bars
  • optional: 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Place the popcorn in a large bowl, be sure to remove all the unpopped kernels as you do.
  2. Melt the white melting candy according to the directions on the package.
  3. Whisk the Speculoos into the melted white candy until smooth. Pour the candy coating over the popcorn.
  4. Add the chopped Twix before stirring. Gently stir with a large rubber spatula to coat the popcorn and candy bars completely.
  5. Spread popcorn on a large piece of parchment, foil, or a silicone liner to let candy coating cool and harden (approximately 20 minutes). Serve immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
  6. optional: melt semi-sweet chocolate chips or melting candy (for speedier hardening) and drizzle over the popcorn.
