*Fireworks Popcorn is heirloom popcorn that is grown by small farmers throughout the Midwest and are required to meet exacting standards. Unlike other commercial brands, Fireworks popcorn kernels have very tender hulls, which shatter when popped. The smaller kernels also have a deeper, richer corn avour. This all-natural and gluten free treat produces a unique and healthy whole grain snack for popcorn lovers of all ages! While you’re in store, pick up a Whirley Pop Stovetop Popper for super popcorn-themed gift for the movie lover in your life! Picking up some Johnston’s double-smoked bacon while you’re there just seems like good sense!!
Ingredients
  • 1 ¾ c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 c. granulated sugar
  • ½ c. Dutch-process cocoa*
  • ¼ c. Silly Cow Chocolate Truffle hot-chocolate mix*
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 c. buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. coffee, at room temperature
  • 2 c. whipped cream, with a few tbsp of sugar and a dash of cinnamon and tsp vanilla
  • shaved chocolate for garnishing
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, hot-chocolate mix, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, oil and coffee. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet, a third at a time, whisking to incorporate between each addition.
  3. Arrange eight 8-ounce Mason jars on a sheet tray and carefully pour ½ c. batter into each jar. Place the tray in the oven and bake the cakes until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 40 minutes. (Cakes will overflow a little then collapse) Remove from the oven. Whip the cream with sugar, vanilla and cinnamon until peaks are formed. Top each cake with the whipped cream and dust with chocolate shavings. Serve warm.
