We were in Costco last weekend and they were sampling this chocolate caramel popcorn and it was amazing! Then I looked at the calorie information…..Yikes!!!! The small bag had enough calories to last me two days of my normal calorie intake. So I thought, “I must be able to make a healthy version of this!” Annnnnnnnnnd here you go!!
Popcorn drizzled with chocolate seems way too decadent for a healthy snack. But when popcorn is made with coconut oil, cocoa powder, and just a little honey, the final result has nothing but wholesome ingredients. And if all that isn’t enough to satisfy your chocolate craving, you can still finish it off with a touch of melted chocolate.
2 Tbsp. unpopped popcorn
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. honey
1 Tbsp. dark chocolate (optional but highly recommended)
1. Pop the popcorn via a popcorn maker, or whatever method you prefer.
3. Melt the cocoa powder, honey, dark chocolate, and coconut oil in a bowl.
4. Pour the chocolate mixture over the popcorn, and toss to coat. Set in the fridge to harden.
