Drum roll please…..

I’ve done it, I’ve cracked the Pret Popcorn Bar- never again will I have to spend £1.50 on one (jk, I definitely will through sheer convenience but still)

This one wasn’t that difficult, I found the “actual” recipe for Pret’s version on their facebook page from years ago although was 100% certain that what they published wasn’t what they actually used so set about modifying it until I was satisfied I had created a rival. Plus, it is definitely a lot more cost effective! (and you can pick your own portion size…)

  • 200g White Chocolate
  • 40g Rice Krispies
  • 70g Salted Popcorn
  • 50g Dark/Milk Chocolate (I prefer dark but it’s up to you!)
  • 1.5 tbsp caramel (recipe here– steps 4&5, you could make the cups at the same time too!)


  1. Break the white chocolate into chunks and then melt it in a large bowl over a double boiler
  2. Add the popcorn & puffed rice to the chocolate and stir well until fully combined & evenly coated
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment and fill it with the chocolate popcorn mixture, pressing down firmly to ensure it is compact then place in the fridge for a couple of hours
  4. Whilst the popcorn is setting, make the caramel & set it aside to cool
  5. Just before you remove the popcorn from the fridge melt the milk/dark chocolate in a heatproof bowl
  6. Once set, remove the popcorn from the fridge and the baking tin, then drizzle the caramel, followed by the melted chocolate over the top
  7. Place the popcorn bars into the freezer for at least half an hour to set the caramel & chocolate
  8. Before cutting into portions let the slab warm up slightly- it’ll make your job a lot easier!

These will last for at least 4 days- thats how long we managed to ration them for anyway, so I can’t vouch for longer but I’m sure you’ll eat them as fast as us!

  • THESE! These are getting made sometime very soon, they sound amazing – I’ve never had the Pret version but look ideal for something to take round to the family next time I go visiting!

    • They’re definitely a crowd pleaser (or pleased my crowd anyway!) so hopefully they’ll go down well! As for Pret’s I definitely pick one up more often than I’d like to admit!

  • These look so delicious I need to make them!
