The perfect film night snack, these popcorn brownies from Shaun Rankin is similar to Rocky Road - always a kids' favourite - but uses popcorn instead of marshmallows

Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Line a baking tin with parchment paper
Sift the flour, icing sugar and cocoa powder into a bowl and set aside
Add the dark chocolate, butter and golden syrup to a pan and place over a low heat. Heat until the chocolate melts, then add the vanilla extract and stir to combine
Carefully crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk until pale and fluffy - you can use an electric hand-held whisk if you have one
Room for a little one
This is a fun step for the kids to do – get them to whisk the eggs until they become fluffy in texture. This is a skill they can put to use in future recipes too!
Slowly fold the warm melted chocolate mixture into the eggs, then gently fold in the flour mixture until fully incorporated

Add the white chocolate and 50g of the popcorn. Pour the mixture into the lined baking tin and bake in the oven for 30 minutes
Remove the tray from the oven and allow to cool. Once the brownie is cool enough to handle, remove from the tray, cut into squares and serve with the rest of the popcorn
