  • For the topping, spread the whipped cream over the top, swirling with the back of a spoon.
  • Chop two of the Snickers bars, place in a bowl with the 4tbsp double cream and warm in the microwave until melted.
  • Add the popcorn and stir to coat.
  • Slice the remaining Snickers bars and pile on top of the cream with the chocolate-coated popcorn.
