Healthier Chocolate Covered Popcorn

I don’t know about you guys, but if I were to choose between having something or having something covered in chocolate, 99% of the time I’m going to choose the chocolate covered one.

Popcorn definitely fits into this category.

The only problem is, it’s pretty difficult to find a chocolate covered popcorn that has ingredients that arguably could be good for you.

Popcorn itself IS indeed a healthy snack (it’s actually considered a grain).  What makes it unhealthy is when you add an abundance of unhealthy ingredients.

That’s why I have come up with this recipe.

You are going to need

1. 2 tbsp unpopped popcorn

2. 1 tbsp coconut oil

3. 1 tbsp cacao powder

4. 1 tbsp honey

5. 1 tbsp dark chocolate (optional but I highly recommend adding)

If you need to know where to find any of these ingredients, you can check out my favorites page.  They’ll either be under frequently used products or superfoods.

This recipe is extremely easy

Start by popping the popcorn.  This can be done quickly by putting the kernels into a large bowl and covering the top almost all the way with a plate.  (You need some space for steam to escape).

Pop for about 2 minutes.  You’ll know when they’re done by one test

See if the kernels are popped 🙂

When they ARE done, melt your cocoa powder, honey, dark chocolate, and coconut oil in a bowl.

Pour over the popped popcorn and set in the fridge to harden.

This doesn’t take long, and once it’s hardened you’re done!

Enjoy whenever, wherever 🙂
