Whether you prefer your popcorn salted, sugared or covered with toffee, the crunchy kernels will always be one of our favourite snacking staples.

And although we think there's nothing better than enjoying a tub of the good stuff while watching a movie, there are so many other ways you can get your fix. 

So to celebrate Popcorn Day in all its glory, we've put together some of our favourite recipes, which are elevated by the addition of you know what... 

 

Chocolate popcorn shards

It's a well-known fact that popcorn and chocolate is a foodie match made in heaven. And we think we've found the best way to combine the two flavours - chocolate popcorn shards with dried fruit.

For a luxurious finish, why not melt some chocolate and drizzle over the top...
