Popcorn with dark chocolate and peanut butter
These beyond delicious chocolate and peanut butter covered popcorn are one of my new go-to’s for a quick and easy treat. They can be a little bit messy, but I promise you that it is worth it!
The popcorn only takes 5 minutes to make, are beyond delicious and are still on the healthier side when it comes to treats, so there is really no excuse not to give these yummy indulgent popcorn a try! ;)
1/2 deciliter (about 0.2 cup) organic corn kernels
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 deciliter (about 0.2 cup) chopped dark chocolate (I used one with 70% cacao)
1 tablespoon peanut butter
Sea salt to taste
Start by melting the coconut oil in a large pot on high heat. When the coconut oil is melted and the pot is hot, then you can add the corn kernels as well, top it with the lid and wait for the corn to start popping. Once the kernels starts popping make sure to vigorously shake the pot back and forth over the stove to ensure that you are not burning any kernels, this will allow the already popped kernels to float to the top. Continue to do this until all kernels have popped. When it is done take the pot off the heat, pour the popcorn onto a baking tray and set it aside.
Melt the dark chocolate and the peanut butter (separately) in a warm water bath and drizzle the popcorn with it + sea salt to taste. Allow the chocolate to set before serving. Enjoy!
