Home-Made Chocolate Popcorn

by Arielle J on June 28, 2012

Home-Made Sweet + Salty Chocolate Popcorn (Non-Microwaved)!
2 tbs coconut oil (extra virgin or filtered)
1/3 cup popcorn kernels
2 tbs organic coconut palm sugar
2 tbs raw cacao/cocoa
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1. Add coconut oil and popcorn to a pot (a high heavy bottomed pot is ideal).
Popcorn and Coconut Oil in the pan...

2. Tilt the pot to ensure all kernels are coated with oil (mix with spatula, if necessary).
Make sure each kernel is coated with coconut oil...

3. Cover and set the pot over medium heat.
4. Wait until you hear the first pop and then shake the pot (keeps them from burning).
5. Pop until most of the kernels have popped (when you hear less than 5 seconds between each pop). Will take approx 4 min. Keep shaking pot.
...and VOILA! Perfectly popped HOME-MADE popcorn!
6. Un-cover

7. In a bowl, mix sea salt, cacao and sugar.

8. Add to popcorn.

9.Optional Add ins:

*optional add in- raw cacao nibs (for added crunch/energy)
*optional add in- cayenne (if you like spicy-chocolate!)
*optional add in- cinnamon (for heart-healthy twist!)

Voila! Eat and enjoy! (Store in a jar or bag at room temp for up to two weeks)

BTW- I brought it into work the other day and my colleagues from Integrative Nutrition LOVED it!

Please note- some people don’t digest corn and popcorn well. Listen to your body…or eat just a little and chew really, really well:)
